This is a well organised museum with lots to see. Frustratingly for us there weren't many descriptions in English but we still enjoyed it. There was a really good exhibition about football and the church. This had an interactive element with quizzes and games. My kids were impressed despite not being great football fans. So my recommendation is to take... More

This museum has artifacts from the city and area from the last 500 years. It covers some eras more thoroughly than others, and it's all a bit of a random collection of things, but it's a GOOD collection of things. Sadly much of the info on items is provided on a tablet with only German commentary, and the signs are... More

This museum was a very positive experience. Very good display of the objects and very well explained on the signs. Only minus was that the coffee shop only accept cash - the lunch had to be cheapest choise and no drinks, as we did not bring enough cash.

To get a good overview of the history of Bremen this is a great place to go, the only problem is that nothing is written in English, you can have a look at all the old paintings and artifacts but unless you can read German it might not be for you.

I enjoyed this Museum, especially the Wilkens Silver exhibit. This museum is in a lovely setting not far from city center.

Very nice museum, but you must know german to enjoy the visit there. I loved the "Isabella" car and the historical buildings in the garden.
