  • Great ships are telling history. An abundance of information - shipbuilding and history explained for scientists and laymen.

  • Some of it is closed for renovations (2019), hence only 4 stars, but we still had a satisfying visit. A virtual tour of a polar research vessel. And the Kogg (Cog) dating back to the Hanseatic League, which they dug out of the mud in the 1960s is really interesting. (Of you find old ships interesting). There are various ships and boats you can get aboard; a harbour tug, a U boat, etc. Well worth a visit.
  • It is currently under construction. The Polarstern experience was awesome. We will definitely come back when it will be ready.
  • Has potential but it doesn't live up to expectations. Most of exhibits are closed (July 2019). You would get a great view of the river/canal from the top floor cafe but even that is now closed
  • Great visit. A great place for hobby balsa shipbuilders. Loved seeing all the artifacts.
  • Fascinating place to be (and see), even whilst it's exhibitions are still in (re)construction. There is quite a bit to see and do there, plus the surroundings are also camera-ready beautiful.
