Had a morning free in Esbjerg, so decided to visit the Fisheries- and Maritime Museum, located approximately 4 kilometers to the North of the town square, along the coast road - only a 5 minute taxi (100 DKK) or 40 minute walk back into town. I think it was 150DKK to enter. Friendly helpfull english speaking museum staff, who pointed... More

We didn't know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. Sealife combined with the Danish fishing history. A cool exposition about the fishing industry through the years. Nice pieces giving you a good idea of the early life. Impressive acquarium with specimen who actually live in the Wadden Sea. Don't miss out on the feeding of the four seals!... More

Heading towards the west-coast from Esbjer, we visited this museum which offered a variety of different fishes and a lot of history about boats and fishing in Denmark. There is also a piknik park for your own food and a place for kids. We spend like 2 hours here and it was good. At the same time you can visit... More

If you are interested in the fishlife in the danish sea, it's a okay place to go. And also to see the seals. But after 1-2 hours, it's about enough, and on a rainy day no fun seeing the outside. If you are really into fishery it's an interesting place.

We went here today and had a great time. We arrived just as the seals were going to be fed and it was fun to watch especially the male seal that went up to the keeper and almost tapped him on his leg to tell him that he wanted more herring to eat. The museum has a nice lay out... More

We had a quick 10 minute stop to see these statues. Interesting structures. You can see out across the shipping area. We were there late in the evening, so there weren't any other people around.

Overall the museum was quite interesting - particularly the outside displays. We found all the steps difficult and would have appreciated more sitting opportunities around the museum. The greatest disappointment was the cafe - no improvement since our last visit 3 years ago. Payed Costa prices for coffee from a coffee machine which we had to pour ourselves ( no... More

We enjoyed a few hours here and it was certainly worth a visit.The dolphin display was a highlight. Children did seem to be well catered for here.
