Arrival and parking
At the museum's main entrance, you'll find everything you need:
- 100 parking spaces for cars
- 2 handicapped parking spaces
- 14 charging stations for electric cars from E-on and Spirii
- 3 bus parking spots
If the parking lot is full, there are fortunately more good parking options on the grassy areas along the road in front of the museum.
You can also choose to take city bus no. 1A and 2A from the train station or no. 13 from the Fanø ferry. The buses stop right outside the museum.
It's easy to visit the museum, even if you have mobility issues or use a wheelchair. Where we have stairs, there are also elevators, wheelchair lifts, or ramps. In the outdoor exhibition, pathways have been created. However, access to all buildings may be challenging.
A significant part of the museum's exhibits consists of texts, images, and objects that should not be touched, but there are also opportunities for those with visual impairments. For example, you can smell and touch buildings, ships, and tools in our outdoor exhibition. Inside, you can touch the fish in our touch pool. In some areas of the exhibition, you can also listen to stories, just as you can hear our guides when they feed and train our seals twice a day.
You are welcome to bring your guide or service dog with you when you visit the museum, as long as they are on a leash.
