M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark

In 2014 the M/S Maritime Museum in Elsinore was listed on the prestigious list of recommendations "52 places to go in 2014". Come and experience the museum for yourself and gain more knowledge on Denmark as a maritime nation. 

The M/S Maritime Museum is located in front of Kronborg Castle in Elsinore and is shaped like an enormous ship. It is built under the ground around an old dry dock.

The famous Danish architects BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group - are behind this underground building. And once you move down the sloping bridges, a world full of maritime stories and adventures will reveal itself. 

Eight different themes

You can experience the story of Denmark as one of the world's leading maritime nations through eight different themes. You can look forward to the museum's rich maritime collection on display in an evocative and dramatic staging with major film projections and soundscapes.  

You can, among other things, come face to face with a torpedo, get an old sailor tattoo and see the world's largest model of a container ship.

Furthermore, the M/S Café offers lunch, hot and cold beverages and a selection of cakes. The museum shop M/S Cargo sells a wide variety of books, clothes, applied arts and toys related to the maritime world.
