This museum was an eye opener. There is nothing boring about it at all. The entrance ticket has the name of a person who actually emigrated and one can follow that person's journey throughout the museum. The swipe card provides one with endless interesting and additional information. There is so much loving attention given to detail. Excellent is the fact... More

This is an interactive museum. I did my tour in English. You are given a swipe card and you swipe the card at each station and you can hear the stories of the people. This museum gives a person a sense of what it was like to emigrate out of Germany. Very well presented. The museum starts out at the... More

Very well done with a unique presentation. You get your "ticket to America" and follow your character's journey from Bremerhaven to the US. You get to "experience" the voyage in everything from sailing ships up to modern steamers. You really get a feeling for the voyages that 1000's and 1000's took. If you are descended from German stock it becomes... More

This is a fine museum. We went to Bremerhaven to pick up a new car from the port and ran into this museum while we whiled away and evening walking. My husband's family immigrated from Germany - through Bremerhaven so walking through this museum was very meaningful!

During my stay in Bremen, I made a day-trip to Bremerhaven for visiting two prominent museums naval museum and immigration museum (DAH). The museum does not consist of consecutive displays in a dull manner; it has a rather theatrical flair that makes one feel the motives, despair and hopes of immigrants. It almost gives an essence of twentieth century history... More

Our German friends spoke highly of this museum experience and they were not wrong. When we visited there was also a special temporary display about Germans who had immigrated 'down under' to Australia, which only heightened the value of our visit. We visited with out German friends and our small person who was fascinated by the whole experience. Your entrance... More

The Bremerhaven Emigration Museum was a wonderfully meaningful and emotional experience. They have captured the feeling of what it might have been like to have the courage to leave everything behind to begin a new life in the new world. This museum will touch you emotionally and ground you and humble you with the fortitude of your ancestors to make... More
