Stumbled across this after a day out in Ribe and it is an exceptional place - despite not being huge wildlife fans it kept us captivated for several hours and the technology and styling of the experience are 2nd to none.

The new Vadehavscentret is a gem. It's got something for both kids and grown-ups, and a lot of interactivity suitable for all ages - a textbook example of how to make a modern and immersive exhibition. The museum is focused around the wildlife (mainly birds)...More

The building is amazing from the outside. It is simple and beautiful! The exhibition is great for kids and adults. Modern and great exhibiton design. You learn a lot about the surrounding ecosystem. There is a touch-pool for kids.

A very nice „museum“ with some creative ways of presenting! Had a very good time here and learned many new things about the Wadfen sea.

The exhibition is very informative but perhaps a little narrow in its range but still give you a good impression of what the 'Vadehavet' is. Main reason for visiting is the design of the building escpecially the thatchery is impressive - worth a detour!

Loved the exhibition of the bird life and their migration. Really pitched and bird lovers rather than people like myself. But really the thatched roof and walls of the amazing centre are worth the visit.
