  • Beautiful museum about the immigration of millions of Europeans to America. Very nice and interactive set up.

  • The House is absolutely impressive and reconstructed very authentic with detailed information. It's already impressive how many million people have made under the most difficult conditions and squalor on the way to a foreign country with an unknown output. Against this background, the current refugee crisis seems almost as smaller, manageable problem. What of course also it is not. The visit left a lasting impression on us and is absolutely recommended.

  • 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!
