Danish frigate “Jylland” is one of the world's largest wooden warships and is preserved as a museum ship in Denmark 🚢
She was built for the Royal Danish Navy in 1860.
During the Second War of Schleswig in 1864, she participated in the naval action against the Austrian-Prussian fleet in the Battle of Heligoland on 9 May 1864 where she sustained considerable damage.
In the 1890s she was reduced to stationary use and barely escaped scrapping in 1908.
She served as a barracks and training ship between 1892 and 1908.
It was, however, decided to preserve her and she was towed to Ebeltoft in 1960. The hulked frigate further deteriorated until she was placed in dry dock in 1984.
Restoration proved to be a major task; over 60% of the timber had to be replaced in addition to the rigging, armament, engines and loose gear.
The restoration efforts were completed in 1994 and she is on permanent display in dry dock at the town of Ebeltoft 🇩🇰
