Open-air exhibition

Step into the world of the coastal fishing villages, the little harbours and the wooden shipbuilding yards as they were during the Second World War. Everything you see was rebuilt from original buildings moved from Esbjerg harbour to the museum, plus reconstructions of houses on the harbour or along the coast. There are ships here too. Some are drawn up on the beach and some on the quay or in the harbour. Smaller boats are on view in the open workshops in some of the harbour buildings. Visit an original Second World War German bunker and see the exhibition on the German “Atlantic Wall” – and get the feel of what it was like to fish and run shipping in time of war. Children and the young at heart can explore in the harbour playground.
