  • Visually definitely a highlight. But it's also already. On a rainy Sunday, this museum is not to be recommended: our bags fit in a locker, we took the jackets also prefer the arm because of the unbeachten dressing room in the hallway of the entrance area. Despite cold stormy weather out there it was much too stuffy in there, many visitors were mutually in the many small niches in the way. We were not even half through and wanted only even out. It is the first tour in the role of a randomly selected German immigrant expressed via Bremerhaven with the ship in a new future and as Museum visitors can you it for this person "research". While the overall look is lost however slightly. It's the same then with the second tour, in which arriving as immigrants to Germany. And it could not have initially been clear us: also addressed the current refugee situation, one should here "sensitizing" are. I personally didn't like, when I visit a Museum, has written special history because of its location, I wants to be not informed fled "professionals" southern borders.

  • Fascinating museum experience. Great staging of historical scenes and artifacts. Particularly impressive replica of various deck cabins. Very nice short documentary films which understand one can be, what it means to emigrate.

  • A full day's adventure. Plenty of history revolving around the emigration from Germany. There are computers available to research your own family history as well. Excellent views outside. Parking is just outside the facility so it is not far to walk.
  • Great insights on history of migration in Germany, starting from the first German immigrants in N and S America to the current immigration crisis. All non-political and focussed on the personal journey of each immigrant. Both educational and heartfelt.
  • When you are in Bremerhaven, you must come and visit it , otherwise you would miss an important place in Bremerhaven
  • Great museum, highly entertaining and insightful and, actually, emotionally quite touching. If you have only one thing you can visit in Bremerhaven, this should be it. While the museum at its opening focused only on emigration, especially emigration through Bremerhaven into the new world, a while ago the museum has been extended with a section on immigration. This is an important topic but the connect to Bremerhaven and this particular location just does not exist in any significant way. I recommend focusing on the emigration part of the museum which is the starting point of the exhibition anyway.
  • I am excited! In the emigration one is taken on a journey you so quickly do not forget. They accompanied "his" emigrants on the various stations and learns many interesting things. The price of admission is worth for a museum that is quite high, but every penny! Must go!
