Spend a day at the Fisheries and Maritime Museum in Esbjerg. There is lots to experience and
even more to look at.
The seals are our permanent residents. Come to one of the daily feeding sessions at 11.00 and 14.30
where you can observe Denmark’s largest sea mammal at very close quarters.
A completely new feature this year is our large offshore exhibition, which gives you a fantastic glimpse of everything from oil and
gas extraction to what life is like on an oil rig.
