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.

Besides a lot of originals (ships, a submarine from WW2) and models you can dive into a lot of topics. Also nice: try the small restaurant/cafe with an amazing scenic view. Costs: 12.50 Euro for my daughter, my wife and me. If you are a...More

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...More

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.
