I think the place offer more to the people who are very much interested in old machinery. For us we preferred to browse the location from outside and appreciated.

From early boats, over Viking boats, the world famous Hanse kog, up to modern shipping - of which Bremerhaven has a lot to offer, anyway - you will find it... More

We went here as part of our day in Bremerhaven. A very informative museum. I speak and understand German, and I can't remember if everything was in any other languages. Parking close by. Easy to find. Great time had.

This museum aims to show all about shipping from ancient time to about present days. Everything is easily understandable and demonstrated well. I could wish more information about the oldest ships and how the old navigation equipment was used. Why only communicate with audiences to a level where any 10 year old kid can follow?

There was a lot to read about on the exhibits. The employees were very friendly. It is a short walk from the Auswanderer Museum

Very good value especially if you purchase a combined ticket. As a former mariner I found all the exhibits interesting and a lot of the information is published in English as well as German. It also has an excellent cafe

They have a lot of cool stuff in the museum, with also some 'fun' zones for the kids. The museum shows a whole lot about ships all throughout history. Also pole expeditions are a small part of the museum.

This has to rank well with other Maritime Museums in the world, well presented displays. Plan on spending time there to really enjoy the indoor displays and don't forget to visit the museum ships in the basin. Well worth the price of admission.

An excellent well laid out and (Should have been) interesting museum however spoilt by the fact that only approx 5% of exhibits had descriptions in English & even guide only in German. Yes I know its in Germany but other countries manage to have alternate language descriptions.

This museum contains the history of ships. A lot of originals, and a lot of models. You min. need 3 - 4 hours for a tour. Interesting for kids, families and engineers.
