  • A museum that tells the Germany who emigrated at the end of ' 800 and 900 for many decades. The Museum is a journey in those years, revives the environments, situations, emotions (where possible). Done very well, especially attractive and exciting. And I would say crucial, a museum on these topics should be in all European countries to remind us of when we were to emigrate to seek a better life, and maybe understand that welcome those who have been less fortunate than us is simply humanity. And understand that the story revolves, yesterday we were we Europeans to emigrate, today we are asked to accept, tomorrow we may be back to us to need help.

  • After we have explored already "Ellis Iceland" in the United States, we were excited by this great emigration. You get a "boarding pass" and can understand the journey through the story of a real immigrant. There are very many stations to amazement, seeing, hearing, comprehension. You can spend the whole day here, very varied, interesting and exciting. So 'History' is fun!

  • One of our grandfathers came in 1902 of Wilhelmshaven (butchery for Kaiser Wilhelm's naval) to Bremen and his family settled in HB on the Willow embankment on the Bürgerpark. Since then, this part of our family Bremen is - the other brothers emigrated to the United States in 1900. The American part of our family lives there since then, mostly on the East Coast and in Florida. If our American relatives in Bremen visited us, we show them the old town in Bremen, and we visit in Bremerhaven Auswandererhaus.Dann can imagine our American relatives, how's their grandfathers in their emigration from Deut. schlang was adopted. This emigration is interesting not only for the older generation, but also for young people and children; not only for German visitors, but for visitors from all over the world! (today Germany is immigration) You can see not only German, but also many people from immigrant backgrounds in the emigration. A visit of the Auswanderunhshauses is advisable to speak on rainy or cold days - and subsequently in the cafe with his children / foreign guests in!

  • Great experience, if you are from the US make sure to visit and learn something about the people that migrated.
  • This is a must-see museum, allocate at least 2.5hrs to completely experience the whole set-up which was ingenious. You can play along as one of the immigrants and its available in English. Look for Levi Strauss, Donald Trump and Elvis Presley in the museum, they are all part of the immigrants history. Totally worth the entry fees!!!
  • Really nice museum that is designed the way to what you see (e.g. the part of the ship transfer is constructed as a ship). The museum comes in two parts. First you will follow the travel into the new world. The second part is designed as an arrival in Germany. Can be done in 2 hours.
  • Great Museum, perfect for Kids as well!
  • It was so good. they have a good quality and reality. we can imagine about immigration at the era easily. and they made me that I want to know how the life, as immigrated people and the native people.
