Outside the holiday period the museum information desk will reply to telephone calls during working hours.
Due to the pressure of work during the holidays, we cannot always answer calls, so we recommend that you use email to or to personal email addresses.

Other museum staff are best contacted at the following times:
Monday to Friday: 09:00 – 15:00

Table reservation in Café MS Smag

We have plenty of space in the café, so it is not necessary to book a table for a regular visit on weekdays. However, it may be a good idea to book a table if you are a group of more than 10 people.

If you have an interesting artefact or other effects that you think may be of interest to the museum, we would like to hear from you so that we can assess whether it should be included in our collection. Send an email to museum curator Richard Bøllund at with one or more photos and information about the artefact/material - e.g. who and where it comes from.

The museum collects artefacts and documentation (photos, records, etc.) within the museum's cultural-historical areas of responsibility - i.e. things related to Danish fisheries, shipping in West Jutland or Danish offshore.
