Bring your children to the museum
A visit to Esbjerg Museum can be a fun experience. Remember that there is free admission for everyone under the age of 18. Whenever we have any special children’s activities at Esbjerg Museum (e.g. during the school holidays), we will announce them on this site.

Children's activity 16/10-24/10
Together with the local citizens, Esbjerg Museum sets a spotlight on what characterizes Esbjerg's building culture.
During the autumn holidays, the museum therefore invites all children to explore both inside the museum and outside in the street and to share their discoveries with us.
At the museum you can e.g. meet some of the residents in the old Esbjerg apartments and find out what kind of city they lived in.
You can also find details and patterns on the buildings in the exhibition and participate in our holiday competition.

When our grandparents were children
Esbjerg Museum’s exhibitions of Esbjerg in the 1930s and 1950s can be the perfect setting for a fun trip to the town centre. Together you can explore the working class flat and the manager’s flat.
Did you know that we have recreated the entire working class flat, but that we can only show a few rooms in the manager’s sizeable home?
What do you think these flats are lacking, which makes them different from your home?
Maybe the adults accompanying you can tell you all sorts of stories, when they see the exhibition.
