Bring the family
The M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark is also for families with children
The M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark is not just for adults – interactive games, temporary tattoo stands and fascinating exhibitions ensure that children have a great experience at the museum.
The interactive exhibits, the beautiful surroundings and facilities make the museum the perfect day out for the whole family. The underground museum offers great experiences for all ages – both during the school holidays and also on normal working days.
Remember that children and young people under 18 get free entry to the M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark.
Draw your own sailor tattoo
The award-winning exhibitions at M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark focus on interactivity. Temporary tattoo stands, where you can get your own sailor tattoo, are a big hit with children.
Play against each other
The museum also offers several games along the way, where both children and adults can channel their inner sailor – both in 1700 and in 2016. The “Tea Time – The First Globalisation” exhibition includes a trading game where you can use a logbook to compete against other visitors at the museum. The aim is to sell, buy and sail.
Live world map and shipping games
Take your experiences of merchant shipping in the 1700s with you to the exhibition on shipping today. Here there is also a trading game – but this time it is your skills as a modern shipping executive that are put to the test. The aim is to sail raw materials between the different continents. It can all be followed on a large live world map, where you also have an overview of ships that sail for Danish shipping companies.
“AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE – ALSO FROM AN ARCHITECTURAL PERSPECTIVE. IT’S NOT HARD TO HAVE THREE GENERATIONS TOGETHER HERE – QUITE THE CONTRARY, IN FACT.”
