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.

This museum is packed with anything to do maritime. Kids can enjoy the rc boats as much as a lot of the displays. We are talking displays from smallest models to full size ships. A few great interactive areas. I recommend this place for the young and young at heart.
