Follow the journey of the 7 million Europeans who left their homeland via the port of Bremerhaven and headed for the New World at Deutsches Auswandererhaus, where you'll experience the process through interactive exhibits. When you enter, you are given an electronic boarding pass, each with the personal story of an individual who either emigrated or found a new home in Germany. Listen to the evolving story you've been assigned to find out what kind of life your person ended up living. Visit the 1950s-style Roxy Cinema to watch short films about immigration in Germany and European emigration to the United States and Argentina. You can even search for your own ancestors using the museum's research facilities. The onsite restaurant blends culinary traditions of the Old and New World. Its large outdoor terrace features views of the harbor.

  • Brings time for this wonderful Museum. 3-4 hours are in no time. One feels IN the situation, not with external events. Highly recommended!

  • 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.
  • When you are in Bremerhaven, you must come and visit it , otherwise you would miss an important place in Bremerhaven
  • Once in a week, what delicious now has not spare ribs it with reservation of a table so folded. But then still a table was free. And the ribs were first on the table. Before the drinks. What was not unappealing, but was more due to the overloading of the service. The first round of ribs was really fruity sauce.

  • I never knew what would await me there. Always previously said. Then went and seen the entry. That was steep at first glance. But it's in real-time the hammer! Explore is the story of people who emigrated. Made really great and worth the money!
