  • That Hamburg at the emigration to a such a large and important role has played United States and auspicious others, is set out in detail and comprehensively in this exhibition. It is development shows very nice by Ballin and represented the motivations like also destinies of many emigrants. In addition, even genealogy can be operated via PC. You should take two hours time. highly recommended.

  • 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.
