#1 of 18 in Things to do in Bremerhaven
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. Plan your Deutsches Auswandererhaus visit and explore what else you can see and do in Bremerhaven using our Bremerhaven trip planner .

    If you have interest in the German emigrant and immigrant history, this didactically very well done Museum must be absolutely visited. At least half a day should be planned for the visit.

    Super Museum, which brings the story very clearly over. The Café is also a good choice.

    The AH is a historically interesting and very informative modern museum which has already won international awards! It's a hands-on, get-the-real-feel museum but to my mind rather suitable for adults ...  more »

  • Amazing.. really you will fell as you are in what people at that time were fill .. I advice you to visit it .it costs just 20€
  • Great museum on emigration history. You can easily spend an entire day here.
  • 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.
  • Exciting museum, also for kids.
