Tirpitz Museum (Danish: Tirpitz Museet), also called Blåvand Bunker Museum, is a museum in Blåvand, on the coast of Jutland. It is built in an old bunker from which it got its name, and features exhibitions on the Atlantic Wall, the west coast of Denmark, and an amber collection.
The Tirpitz Bunker started construction in 1944, and was built as part of the defense around the city of Esbjerg. Following the surrender of the German forces, construction was halted, and the bunker was therefore never completed. The bunker was designed to house 2 turrets with 2 38 cm SK C/34 naval guns each. After the war, the bunker was abandoned and later turned into a small museum.

Had a lovely visit with my partner. Really great architecture, I enjoyed the exhibit on the history of the area, with a great audio visual movie. There is a reconstruction of the bunkers and stories of those involved in the building and who lived in the area at the time. The exhibit on Amber wasn't that interesting to me but I'm sure many will find it interesting. The actual bunker is great to walk around and get a real feel for it. The museum uses audio information points, which is great for all nationalities.

The exhibitions are quite interactive and fun, especially if you aren’t too fund of museums in general. Great storytelling about the area throughout the exhibitions.

A very interesting museum with a large bunker. However, there are other exhibitions too

Interesting place with some interaction and hands-on experiences. Unfortunately I/we visited on a crowded day and it is for sure better when you can get easier around and see everything in your own pace instead of queuing up...

Wonderful museum built around a WW II bunker. Interesting exhibits with multi language voice overs for each. Cafe and small gift shop. Picnic and beach access with trails make this a full day adventure.

One of the best museums about 2nd World War and the Danish west coast. The audio voice telling is great and makes it easy to hear exactly things of your interest. In the bunker (Tirpitz) you'll come very close to the war, almost like being a soldier back in 1945. The building of the museum, build into the sand dune, is a visit worth by it self.

A great architectural piece but the exhibition is very poor. There is too much reliance on use of audio guides which means people disconnect from the world around them making them walk like drones. It is hell in that people push in to get to the audio activation points. The actual exhibits are poorly displayed and hard to see because the windows are too small. The explanations are superficial with no depth of fact. There is an incredible waste of space and only a tiny amount of information about the bunker and the area in the war. Allbin all it was over priced and a wasted day.

Fantastic architecture. However, the presentation of the exhibits is limited to listening to small annekdotes from your portable bluetooth device. The positive is that you can choose what you want to hear about. The negative is that it's virtually impossible to get an overview of an overall story, or the part that might just interest me. It is a shame and far from the standard of Danish museums today. On top of that you only get very little information about the people who were part of the stories told. Another negative thing is that deaf visitors have virtually no way to get information along the way because the written information is less than minimal. Hope the museum's people get into gear and create a better dissemination - the architecture is not enough to convey the many stories that are there to be told.

Amazing experience around WW2 bunker Tirpitz, remodelled around it to be a museum. Check out life before, life around the sea, the changing nature here and of course visit Tirpitz bunker which was once equipped with a ship-gun with 55 km reach! A must see experience at 125 DKK per person and kids up to 17 free

Great museum. Especially notable for its focus on the stories of the people, rather than on the war itself.

This museum is amazing, both historically and in the way they present the exhibits. The whole museum is like a giant audio book or podcast, as you get handed a small device at the entrance where you can scan tags around the museum, and hear a narrator tell you about the thing you are looking at and the story behind it. I'd recommend bringing your own headphones, as there's a mini-jack plug in the device that you're handed, because the built-in speaker isn't that good.

A nice experience, very educational and a beautiful piece of architecture. Heartbroken to later find out we missed the centerpiece of the museum - nobody told us about any 4D movie nor were there any signs to be seen.

Interresting and fun place. Good voice guides and story telling. I would recommend this place to young and old. Children should be 6 years plus
