This review submitted by NIELS JOHS LEGARTH IVERSEN,
September 2000

The Kattegat Center in Grenaa (Djursland) lies close to the ferry harbour, from where you still can sail to Varberg in Sweden. However the town lost its routes to Zealand and a route to Helsingborg in Sweden several, so people in Grenaa started to feel somewhat anxious about the future. They then came up with the scheme of an aquarium and museum combined where you could study the lifeforms of the Kattegat (the Sea between Denmark and Sweden). And they achieved their goal, the place has drawn lots of customers. When you enter what strikes you first is the magnificent viwe of the REAL ocean through the large panorama windows. Apart from this, the main attraction is a plexiglass tunnel through a large tank filled with sharks, rays and other fish swimming around in 500.000 liters of sea water. It is the only place where you can find this use of a transparent tunnel in Denmark, and especially the chance to watch sharks from beneath has gripped the imagination of the general public. Adding to this there is a more traditional collection of modest tanks with local fish other marine life from the Kattegat, plus pedagogical displays showing the effects of the tide. The latest addition is a couple of common seals in an outside exhibit. Inside there is also a science section where you can study marine life and the sea with the help of microskopes and other gadgets, - very popular with kids.
