I love boats. I love tall ships. My wife and family.... ehhh, maybe not so much. My opinion is that this is a great stop to visit whilst at the sea. If you are expecting a "magnificent show" or a lot of pomp and circumstance, you will be disappointed. Hours are quirky, so confirm before making plans to visit.

If anything positive for Denmark came out of the Second War of Schleswig in 1864, it was the succesful naval action against the Austrian-Prussian fleet in the Battle of Heligoland on 9 May 1864. After some 10 years of restoration of the frigate Jutland, billed as the world' longest wooden ship, visitors to the quaint seaside town of Ebeltoft can experience the frigate "in action" in the During the Second War of Schleswig in 1864, she participated in the naval action against the Austrian-Prussian fleet in the Battle of Heligoland on 9 May 1864. The warship, together with the interactive Time Machine in its adjacent museum, answer many questions a youngster might ask, for example:
* what was it like to be an ordinary seaman, an officer, or the commanding officer onboard the Jutland?
* who were the heroes of the battle, and what became of them?
* what was it like in the midst of the battle? What if someone was wounded?
* were the ship's cannons really used in the battle?
* what does the ship's steam engine look like? The propellors? The ship's anchors?
* can someone help me climb up the ship's rigging?
* how can I find and open the dead man's chest?
All this and much more sights, sounds and smells greet the lucky one whom visits this unique exhibition.

By the harbour, in nice and quiet Ebeltoft, you will find the world's longest wooden ship, "Fregatten Jylland". It is very well preserved, and you are able to enter it, to discover all features on all decks. The location is beautiful, and has a couple of nice, affordable restaurants.

The ship is fantastic preserved and So you feel like you are stepping centuries back in time when you Walk around the ship and see how Kings, Captains and the sailors lived and fought on and old warship.
If you dare the have climbing equipment and tours, so you can climb the masts to the top like a real sailer.. In the museum the have have inactive battle. Where the kids can load and fire old canons like in a real sea battle......we couldn't get the kids out of there
It is also possible to take a sail tour in a smaller old wooden boat (extra costs).

The ship looks a lot better from the outside than inside. While the main deck cabin areas are restored quite nicely and maintained, the lower decks are not so nice - probably as it was when this was a working warship.The cannon deck with its full array of cannon is quite impressive. The several "wax" reconstructions of sailors going about their daily labors, eating, sleeping and operating the cannon, helped lend a sense of what living conditions were like on the ship.

The ship is in dry dock so you can actually walk around the copper clad hull and get a close up look at the ships construction inside and out

At 125 DKK, about $20 US it is fairly expensive; the family rate of 330 DKK is a lot better but still petty high cost for travelers on a budget.
