The cloakroom is in the basement near the Hirtshals Pier aquarium. Use of the cloakroom is at  your own risk but for a deposit of 20 DKK you can use one of our lockers.

Defibrillator

We have a defibrillator available to our visitors. The defibrillator is situated on the wall just right of the large oceanarium window. Our staff is always happy to help in case of an emergency.

Access for disabled

All of the North Sea Oceanarium is accessible for disabled visitors. We have several lifts and restroom facilities for the disabled and there are special parking booths for disabled near the entrance. A disabled visitor pays the same entry fee as everyone else but if you need a carer, he or she gets in for free.
