Natural History

We have an ocean’s worth of stories to share about our waters and coasts – from the fascinating ecosystem and the wealth of natural wildlife in UNESCO’s world heritage site to life beneath the ocean surface.

Come close to the common seal and Denmark’s largest predator, the grey seal, and watch them being fed and trained.  See our amazing photographs and films and try out our interactive seal game.  You’ll also see the great skeletons of stranded whales.

Embark on a journey beneath the surface in the Saltwater Aquarium and meet everything from corals and jellyfish to the North Sea’s large predatory fish.  Stroke a Small-Spotted Catshark in our petting pool.

Here, nature is

connected with culture

The sea has furnished us with poetry, it has driven social development and shaped our self-image as a nation. But the sea has also been threatened by people’s sometimes blind belief in its supposedly inexhaustible resources and limitless capacity to absorb waste and effluents. Through objects, documents and narratives, we breathe life into the tale of our common cultural and natural heritage – a heritage that we can use to understand and communicate the past, interpret the present and help shape the future.
