  • We were often in the Bremen overseas Museum and be guaranteed return. Very impressive, with the love the exhibition parts to detail always kindly. Most recently, in September, we have 16 the great Africa exhibition seen. Currently, there is an America exhibition. By the way the breakfast/brunch in the overseas Museum is also highly recommended!

  • This is another nice museum. A mix of about everything which makes this museum overall a great thing to have a visit.
  • Amazing! I absolutely loved the African part of your museum. Loved the music room. Unfortunately my German is very basic so we were a bit struggling as we could not read about the stuff we saw. English placards should be added. The ticket price is very reasonable.
  • There is nothing write in English, so unless you understand German, you won't be able to read about what are you looking at. I don't recommend it at all, better to spend the money somewhere else.
  • Very interesting exhibition on the cultures and peoples of the world. The lower part is much more interesting than the upper. To recommend very however alone for the bottom part.

  • A Museum for families with children. A compilation of their artefacts behind glass in the rear part is located on several floors. Everything very closely. The caption in the whole Museum could be better. Whenever something was interested in closer for more information about missing me.
