This is a living museum. You get an "identity" at the entrance to follow his emigration step by step. The most impression scene is at the harbour where the travellers use the gangway. Also my 13 year old daughter was excited. And you can look in the digital books of emigration to find your ancestors and their ship.

We enjoyed the museum. The audio and written displays were in Germany and English. I wish we had gotten there sooner so we could have taken more time to explore the exhibits in detail. The let the last person in at 5 PM and close at 6 PM sharp. There is a restaurant in the front lobby. The gift shop... More

The Deutsches Auswandererhaus is a pretty cool experience. It provides you the opportunity to experience and wander through the process of immigration and emigration in Germany. It is a little frustrating to access the English version of everything since many sign have German on one, English on the other and the English side is usually hidden in the wall. You... More

As a student studying migration, I found this museum to be very informative without being too boring or dry. Get your self identity card and trace the path of an immigrant leaving for America. Will you make it through Ellis Island? After you're finished relax with a beer outside in the harbour at the cafe attached to the museum.

We enjoyed our tour through the Emigration Museum located on the Bremerhaven Wharf. It's really well done, lots of attention to detail and gives you a feel for the era. The museum is laid out nicely taking you through the emigration experience through different eras. My youngest daughter was a little freaked out with the life like wax figures (especially... More

This is a wonderful museum which explains the immigration of so many Germans (particularly through Bremerhaven), using displays which makes the visitor feel part of the history and enables one to undertake interactive activities. It is interesting and informative. As an Australian of migrant parents, I was keen to learn more of immigrants to Australia. However, I recognize that they... More

This museum is really an experience not to be missed, especially if you are interested in history. It has been very well designed to be both informative and interesting, and you may find you want to spend a lot of time there. I would pass on the restaurant there though.

This is a nice tribute to the memory of over seven million Germans that from Bremerhaven to make their way out into the world with the belief and in search of better life somewhere else stretching from Europe to South America to as far away as Australia/New Zealand. All over Germany I met incredibly nice and friendly people that seem... More
