Eye-witness accounts by local characters
Our exhibition on Denmark’s Incredible Fishing Venture celebrates the Esbjerg fishing industry and presents the fishing captains’ testimony of their extraordinary experiences as a tribute to their home town. This is our farewell to Esbjerg’s legendary years as a great fishing city and our celebration of the fishing industry that shaped the city.
"Both the portraits and the stories make this a very personal exhibition.
The exhibition takes us on the journey of life itself. This was a wild life, and the most amazing thing is that these fishermen don’t even think it was anything special", reflects the former museum director David Dupont-Mouritzen.
