  • It is the story of an emigrant and an immigrant. It is mega interesting design and the experience! You can see much and listen to. Be it cosy overlooking the harbour or from scenes designed with much love! A true recommendation for all with some interest in history.

  • It is commendable, as impressive the time was rendered, in which many people, including families with children were forced to leave their homeland or wanted to.

  • Actually we wanted to only in the Zoo. But here we were very quickly and had left much of the day, so we decided to visit the opposite emigration. Price of admission first somewhat deterred us, but we paid him then but. We weren't disappointed. The Museum is beautifully constructed. You get a card each another, on which the expatriate human story at the entrance. It is animated to to track the life cycle of this person in the Museum. You should have relatives from the past who emigrated via Bremerhaven to America or South America, you will find something about these persons there with some research. The emigration Center is worth a visit and is quite entertaining. We very enjoyed it.
