I have been to … the Model Ship Collection, Bangsbo Estate, Frederikshavn, Denmark

In the same building as the Resistance Museum on the Bangsbo Estate, Frederikshavn, Denmark is a model ship collection. the models represent different types of ship operated and sailed by the Danes.


The first section of the display covered icebreakers, a type of vessel that is often needed in the Baltic during the winter months.

Nautical safety was covered by a model of a lightship ...

... and more general naval history by the inclusion of a model British warship from the early nineteenth century.

This was followed by a collection of assorted Danish merchant ships.

The collection also included a large number of models of sailing vessels.










Also on display was a model of a typical small side trawler ...
