Visit The Sea Captain’s House on the island of Rømø in south-western Jutland is a preserved whaler’s home and one of the island’s old houses once owned by wealthy families. The name of the residence refers to the captains, who in the 17th and early 18th centuries commanded large whaling boats, which went on trading trips and long whaling expeditions in the North Atlantic. The house has an outstanding view over the Wadden Sea and is fully furnished. It contains unusually good examples of 18th century detailed painting and joinery. Inside the home you can also see whole walls decorated with the Dutch tiles of the period. In the barn you can view the large sperm whale skeleton, which gives a good impression of the large creatures and forces of nature that the period’s sea captains had to contend with on their voyages to the Arctic Ocean.
