Lovely little museum of times past
May 2019 • Solo
I was on a cruise of the Baltic and Warnemunde turned out to be one of best stops on the trip. This delightfully busy place had a lovely little museum of an old wooden fisherman's house. I was fortunate to visit on a open day and see the house and garden for free.

The little museum was very interesting and informative about how the fisher folk lived, worked and the town's local history. I found out that to stop fire spreading between the wooden houses in olden times the townspeople insisted on a standard fire break between the houses. Apparently that distance was the amount of space needed for a pregnant cow to waddle between the houses without touching them!

I spent an enjoyable time here and would recommend a visit

small, but very interesting
Aug 2018 • Couples
Whilst visiting Warnemunde recently, we came across this small town museum. A lovely and impressive outside to the museum and upon entering you son realise that you are viewing items, nostalgia etc., on a smaller scale than you would normally view in a museum.

Tastefully laid out, very interesting items and comments as you walk around the rooms and you soon get a feel that a lot of this beautiful town's history is stored in the building and set out very well in it's displays.

All in all a little gem in this lovely German town. Well worth a visit.

A lovely small local museum, located in a local house, it has some nice displays and explains the history of the local area - certainly worth a visit if time allows.

Full of history and nostalgia

A lovely small museum in an old fisherman's house, with exhibits showing the life of a Baltic fisher family's life and work a century or so ago. There are also exhibits covering the maritime and industrial development of the area, including the Heinkel aircraft factory, and its growth as a resort for tourists from Berlin.

Quaint little place

Small museum in an old house. The usual motley collection of old utensils, furniture, clothing etc. Side room gives a good historical overview of Warnemünde's industrial evolution.

Authentic point

Did not visit the museum itself, but the small house looks very authentic from the outside. You would surely be curious adn take a picture if you notice it.

Best Small Museum
Sep 2016 • Couples
This museum is right near the tourist information which recommended it to us. For 3 euros you get admission and an audio tour in English. The museum covers the development of the area from a sleepy fishing village 100 years ago to one of Germany's most popular resort towns. They have many fishing related artifacts and do a good job of taking you back 100 years. This is a smaller museum but is packed with history and the story is told in an organized sequence worthy of any big city museum. It was nice weather when we were there and the museum was not crowded. This is a must see attraction.

Story of fishermen who lived in Warnemunde
Aug 2016 • Family
The Heimat Museum is near the Warnemunde Tourist office. It is based in an old fisherman’s house.

It has exhibits on the history of Warnemunde – how it changed from a sleepy small fishing village to a holiday resort. You get a feel of how life was in Warnemunde at the end of the 19th Century – the lifestyle of the fisherman and sailors who lived here.

The population of Warnemunde is just over 8,000 – but you would not think so – judging by the large number of visitors who come to Warnemunde for their vacations.

The museum also pays homage to Stephan Jantzen – the Commander of the Pilot and Rescue team.

Opening hours are from 10 am to 6pm for the months of May to September. It closes an hour earlier for the months of October to April.

Entry for adults is 3 Euros and for a family ticket it is 6 Euros.

A great place to visit, full of local history
Aug 2016 • Couples
My wife & I really enjoyed our visit to this museum, which is set in a house once belonging to a local family and left to the town in perpetuity.

It's full of local history, and the items on show brought the local history to life of r us. There is also a very useful audio guide.

The best small museum either of us has ever visited and an absolute 'must see'!
