Frilandsmuseet Hjerl Hede

Reviewed By JorgenHelstrup - Hammel, Denmark

Travelling with three generations, the open air museum was great fund for all. The chance to see how farm life was through generations adding the presence of volunteers dressed in traditional, yet best sunday, clothes was interesting and fun. The bakery, the saw mill and the steam train was the hightlight, though the workshop staff - all trained craftsmen was great too. Obviously enjoying showing their craftsmanship!
The youngest generation was absorbed by the animals - hens, sheeps, gease and horses.
Remember to bring your packed lunch with you, and remember that not all the volunteers know foreign languages.

Strandingsmuseum St. George

The St George Shipwreck Museum tells the story of the dramatic shipwrecks off the coast of West Jutland and the people’s encounters with seamen from all over the world. Severe storms, mist and sea fog, unpredictable ocean currents, changeable depths and no Islands to offer shelter have led to thousands of shipwrecks along the West Coast. Embark on a journey in a world full of dramas, tragedies, love and heroism. Children have free admission to the Museum, which also houses an outdoor maritime playground and its own cafe and restaurant. We look forward to seeing you.

Very interesting and you really feel the history. The exhibition is very well arranged both for children and adults. Among other things there is a "submarine", where you can feel how it was to be under water in a small room.

Kaj Munks Praestegaard

Reviewed By Sandy S - Albuquerque, New Mexico

The parsonage of Kaj Munk, the playwright-priest murdered by the Nazis in January 1944 after preaching an Advent sermon against the Nazis in the main Cathedral in Copenhagen is worth the effort it takes to visit. Finding the bucolic spot overlooking a lush wetland near Vedesø required some doing. Once there, we wished that we’d read up on this martyr to conscious beforehand. Not only were there no explanatory materials in English; there were none in German, either. Although not at all grand, the house looked surprisingly spacious and prosperous. Photos showed Kaj and Liese Munk in front of a Blaupunkt radio, on which they listened to the BBC. A library contained volumes of Munk’s books and plays, including his works on Danish medieval hero Niels Ebbesen, who resisted earlier German occupation. A garage housed Munk’s gleaming, deep red Ford two-door sedan and his wooden sleigh. We were able to make out from explanatory texts in the front room that Munk, who had been orphaned as a young child, had received some financial assistance from his grandfather. Presumably, royalties from his writing had also helped. Upstairs, Carl Theodor Dreyer’s critically acclaimed 1955 film version of his 1925 play “The Word” (“Ordet”) played on a continuous loop.

Holstebro Kunstmuseum

Danish and international art from the 1930s until today alongside traditional non-western art.

Reviewed By Janice17 - Holstebro, Denmark

Myself and teenager daughter & son visited. We didn't go into the Art museum just the local museum. Over the summer we visited various local museums, Lemvig, Silkeborg, Struer & Ringkøbing to name but a few, so we were a bit disappointed with Holstebro museum. It's ok. We felt it lacked the coziness and charm of other mentioned museums. The permenent local collections were fine, I can't quite put my finger on it but considering the amount of space they have there was a lot of just boards with photos. There was also a display of aerial photos not permanent display which were ok. Currently free to visit as closing in April for building/refurbishment so it was fine for an hours visit. I should mention there was a large area for children's activities which we didn't join as mine too old. There were various school holiday activities laid on. There was a cafe, 30kr for a cake. We didn't eat there, we usually always buy from the museum shops on our visits but again- shop was, compared to others, limited. Overall - it's fine. Not amazing. Be interesting to see what it's like when it opens again after works. Maybe there will be more to see.

Thorsminde Fiskerihavn

Reviewed By wallymyster - Cancun, Mexico

Nice little Danish fishing port. They have a few little restaurants and it's a very nice little place. It's nice to walk around on the beach. Bring your jacket 'cause it's gonna get cold, especially if it's windy. The sand might blow in your face too, but it's all part of the experience! It's also nice to see the locals fishing and hanging their catch, they have a very peculiar way of prepping the fish.
