Following a visit to the USS Constitution in Boston a year ago, and not being anywhere close to approaching the ship plus a mediocre museum,this was amazing.

The museum itself is cool, interactive and... Not overwhelming.

Then, the ship! The longest wooden ship... Restored and feels ready to sail. This is the real thing! A real war ship. A real royal ship.

The dry dock allowed seeing every detail of it from the propeller through to the royal quarters.

We got a family ticket for two adults and two kids up to 11. A ticket combo we never see in Denmark. It cost 330. And we got 20% discount for both the glass museum and the nearby safari park.

Highly recommended

Highly recommended.

The ship itself is impressive and very well kept. You can spend hours walking around it. Sometimes there are entertaining arrangements or the possibility of buying food like they made it on the ship when it was operational - check the time table. Great interactive museum in the building - good fun for all ages. There is also a vast souvenir shop with lots of decorating art and crafts. Note: It's not recommended to eat at the very poor and expensive restaurant next to the ship. Service is terrible (kids that don't know anything), food is not home made and prices are steep - walk 5 minutes uptown instead to restaurant "Mellem Jyder" or another place in the old part of Ebeltoft.

In the harbour of Ebeltoft in a huge dock, lies the tallship Jylland. It is an extraordinary ship, both in terms of good conditions, the size and the exciting history of it. Here you can see the royal cabins, the smaller cabins for the ship's crew as well as the huge deck. You can also climb the masts. You can walk around the ship inside and outside and it's just a fantastic piece of danish craftmanship.

Amassing piece of Danish wood war ship history. If you are there around 12:00, experience the firing of one of the old canons. Just another piece of disruption when entering from sail to steam:-)

Happened to be staying in Aarhus and thought this worth the bus trip around the coast - and it certainly was! The restoration of this 19th century frigate is a story in itself, and the way the life and times on board is portrayed was very evocative. Good use of AV on board the ship near the cannons and in the the museum building itself. Special mention of the display about, and film of, the actual damage round shot could do to these ships. The surrounding buildings have many artefacts related to the frigate.
A nice, enjoyable museum at a reasonable price.
