Grab the crab before it grabs you! Do you dare pat a shark on its head, stroke a ray down its spine, or hold a crab in your hand?
In our touch pools you meet the animals up close, and you can lend a hand on certain days when we feed the sharks, rays, and flatfish.
Feeding the fish
You have the opportunity to join in when we feed the fish in our touch pools. Our fishmaster finds the feed which is going to be used, and you can help giving it to sharks, rays, and flatfish in selected aquariums.
Every Monday and Friday at 1.00 p.m.
In July and August also every Wednesday at 1.00 p.m.
Do you dare pat a shark on its head, hold a crab in your hand, and stroke or scratch a lobster’s back?
In JyllandsAkvariet we have many touch pools that give you the possibility to get in touch with the animals, but at the same time the pools are so wide or deep that the animals can withdraw from contact with humans, if they need to.
We respect that all our employees may need a break – even the sharks.
Make your own souvenirs
Use your imagination and make your very own souvenirs from the West coast. We have collected a number of shells and other things from the beach, which can be glued together to everything from fabulous monsters to pretty figurines.
Buy kites, pirate’s swords, jewellery boxes etc. and decorate them
At the beach workshop there's possibility for lots of creative activities for both children and adults.
Can you recognize it?
Can you recognize amber when you see it? Or have you just bitten in way too many yellow stones without ever finding a piece of amber?
Find-your-own free amber at our indoor beach
Amber has always fascinated people. At the indoor beach at JyllandsAkvariet there is always a guarantee that you can find your own amber – all included in the entry fee to the aquarium. You can immediately test if it is amber or yellow stones in our amber tester.
Our own special agility course
Dogs are very welcome at the aquarium, and we've made a maritime playground - just for them. It is our own unique version of an agility course with eight different obstacles.
The obstacles are built from whale’s bones, stepping stones, planks from the old pier in Thyborøn, a fishing trap, buoys, an old anchor, and finally the finish is on top of an overturned dinghy.
We hope that our four legged guests will like the agility course, our style, an we hope that their two legged owners think it is just as much fun to get the dogs to run the course – no matter whether they are trained agility course users or complete beginners. We recommend using plenty of treats.
If you're going on one of our seal safaris or nature safaris, you're welcome to have your dog looked after at our dog-lounge. It's necessary, though, that the dog is used to being alone, and that you pick it up immediately after the tour is finished. It is necessary to reserve - call the aquarium at +45 97 83 28 08.
"Hygge" and relaxation
A "hyggelig" experience
We have done our best to create a setting where you will get a really good experience as soon as you enter our exhibition.
Most of the equipment is made of wood from old piers, well boxes, and old ferry berths. It all has a unique story and a soul of its own.
Come inside and be surprised in our very own maritime world of natural experiences.
