  • A Museum of a special kind. It is impressive what sailors from their journeys have brought. The exhibitions are always an experience.

  • The Museum is located directly at the central station. The collection is huge and offers a comprehensive insight into the diversity of the cultures of other continents. My rating is only satisfactory. Here I follow my spontaneous impressions. The variety of modern presentation techniques has almost killed me. I was also on a day at the Museum, where many little kids there were. I think it's good that children be introduced to such museums. Ja...Aber it was just quite noisy in the large hall-like building. So focusing on the exhibits was pretty hard. By the way you should be visiting the exhibition. An incredible collection of exhibits offers visitors a stroll across the bridge to the annexe. These are issued on another, hardly visited three floors.

  • 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.
