  • 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.

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

  • Interesting maritime museum Several ships you can go on board.. a tug, a whaling ship and a 1920s cargo and salvage boat that worked all over the world. There is a large steel sailing boat as well as U1 submarine from 1945. Inside there is a reconstruction of a medieval cog boat discovered in the estuary. Well presented and informative exhibition. €3 for the museum which includes entry to the ships outside. The submarine was €3. Plenty of parking nearby, restaurants and a big shopping centre close by that sells food. Great views of the estuary. Recommended
  • Fun place to explore a few ships moored there. The museum houses a medieval Kogge merchant ship that has been restored. Definitely recommend a visit if in the area.
  • If you are fan of ships and other stuff related to vehicles that keep you from drowning while crossing big blue parts of our planet, there is very good chance you will like it here. With only 4€ price per person it is a bargain, and amount of information you can find on ships, food, equipment and other sailor things is pretty good. Information is mostly translated to English so that is also huge plus for non German speakers. Some of exhibits are interactive, there are sound presentations, mini theater and plenty of interactive things for children to enjoy, even driving remote controlled ships on a giant pool. I have been in a better museums, but few of them offer this good value for money.

  • Good and fun museum for foreign tourists and kids that would like to learn about maritime discoveries and history. Museum sometimes felt all over the place, yet it had a nice exposition.
