Welcome to THE FRIGATE RELATES, an audio guide about the harsh life aboard a 19th century warship told to you in the sailors’ own words.
Drawing on the museum’s collection of diaries, letters and memoirs from some of the men who served on the frigate Jylland, this audio guide brings you along to experience all of the great ship.
Undertake a unique and dramatic journey full of personal stories about life and work aboard the ship – a journey which of course also includes the fateful Battle of Helgoland on the 9th of May 1864.

The wooden frigate ‘Jylland’ is one of the longest and most significant historic wooden ships in the world. Built in 1857-1860, it was both the first and last warship in the Danish navy with an originally inbuilt steam driven engine and sails – a cutting edge hybrid of its time, superior in speed with its long and slender hull.
It survived 18 hits during the battle of Heligoland 1864 and worked as a royal ship, sailing King Christian IX to the Faroe Islands, Iceland and Saint Petersburg in 1874 and 1876. Since then, the old warship has functioned as lodging for soldiers and children of the rural districts of Denmark, as exhibition facilities of the National Exhibition of 1909 and others. Many times, it has faced the destruction of slow decay and being sold for scraps.
Thanks to ardent people, skilled craftsmen and generous foundations, the proud ship survived and now resides in its dry dock in Ebeltoft.
