  • Well done and highly relevant exhibition. Opens new perspectives in the context of the refugee crisis.
  • The museum displays the history of immigrants through various resumes which illustrate the different waves. Also, the topicality of the issue will be shown. That's right nice, but compared to other museums in Hamburg is not quite as much. However, there is plenty of parking.
