Sea War Museum Jutland uses thousands of underwater finds to tell dramatic stories about the sea war in the North Sea, focusing on WW I and the biggest naval battle in world history, the Battle of Jutland. This battle took place by the west coast of Jutland in 1916. 100,000 men on 250 German and British vessels fought over the supremacy at sea. The battle lasted for 12 hours and when it was over, 25 vessels had sunk and 8,645 German and British sailors had lost their lives. Adjacent to the museum – in the dunes facing the sea – a beautiful memorial park has been established to commemorate all the sailors who died during the Battle of Jutland.
