The exhibits were lovingly out together by locals. This small museum tells the story of the neighbourhood of St. Pauli, from humble beginnings. It includes many gems from the Beatles (and beat) era and also covers its history of prostitution, pimps and drag queens. Also included are the back story to what has made the area the party capital of Germany, and includes artefacts and pictures of legends such as Freddie Quinn and Hans Albers.
Sadly, due to demands for higher rents, this place is under threat of closure. Go while you can!

We came here to end Hempel’s Beatles tour with a concert of around 8 songs. The drinks were nice but there weren’t anything to see except Paul McCartney’s bass.

5€ to the trash. My recommendation: don't go. It's the worst "museum" I've ever been. Actually this place can't be considered museum.

Went with some friends for the first time and were really disappointed. A few sorry artifacts, carelessly displayed with poor lighting. Drab. No way to capture a visitor's interest and does NOT justify the entrance fee of €6. A "rip off"!!

This small museum gives an overview of the area's mixed past and how it has evolved. The interpretation is all in German but there was a special section about women of the district that was in English too. I found the stories of these women fascinating and the place gave a different perspective on this fascinating area.

St. Pauli area has an incredible history, yet these folks somehow made it pretty boring. There are some interesting sidelights, but generally, this isn't a great museum. With an undercurrent about the Prostitution that has been active here sine the 1300s, The topic was marginally developed. The discussions are in German and/or Dutch, there is a side book in English, but it really doesn't follow the displays. Overall, I was kind of disappointed in this museum.

My son was keen to visit the FC St Pauli museum and without realising that a football museum didn't exist he took us here! We'd paid the very nice man our money before it dawned on us that this museum had more to do with the seedy side of the St Pauli area than football.
We were told the museum had recently been refurbished but heaven knows what it looked like before. There are displays on the local drag queens, prostiutes, the history of the area, theatres and a bar if you want to spend long enough in there. Realising our mistake we were in and out in 15 minutes.

For 5 € entrance you will see a short movie about the history of St. Pauli.

Add to that many photos and quite a few memorabilia and you have spent 45 minutes - well.

Might not be suitable for youngsters.
