  • Not to be missed, 10 floors devoted to every aspect of navigation and the marine environment. Whether you love the sea, model makers, real or potential browsers cannot miss visiting it.

  • We have celebrated my son's 8th birthday with 10 children in the IMM. All children participated with great pleasure. Only we adults found the Guide slightly unfriendly and rude. Also the Guide at the beginning of promised a reward, no longer mentioned at the end? Towards the end the concentration of children was something, and the boys had no patience to look at on the trail of Captain James Cook issued boats. But all in all it was a very successful birthday party in the IMM.

  • Is an awesome museum if you like boats,ships, naval history or maritime research, I spend like 3 hours there. 
  • One of the best places for people, who really like marine theme. There you can find everything connected with the see. The exhibition starts with ancient navigation systems and goes through everything. On the last stage you can see even small models of great number of ships.
  • Nice museum, way too long for my taste, but if you get a rainy day like I did, it is definitely a good place to spend some time.
  • A great display of everything nautical. Almost too much to see in one visit. I started at the top deck (deck 9)and worked my way down but its just so big!
  • More than 40,000 items are displayed over 10 floors and it would be easy to spend hours in the museum. The exhibitions trace maritime history from the early days of prehistoric man, through the European colonial years, the naval stories of war, and even up to the luxury cruise liners of today. While there is a particular emphasis on German history, there are collections from around the world. It’s fascinating and is well laid out for both children and adults.
  • Go there only if you are specifically interested in nautics. It was well organised and huge.
