This musuem has nine floors of maritime collectibles from around the world. 13 euros for an adult but worth every penny.

The museum has 9 floors. Each floor has a different concept. There are lots of items, models and lots of stuff from everywhere in the world. Unfortunately i arrived there too late, and i only had 1,5 hours to visit it, but it needs certainly half a day to see everything rightfully.

Great Museum that has a huge selection of ships and stories about people and the sea. Very modern and nice building. Well worth a visit, especially when it is rainy or windy outside.

The model of Hamburg Port and the ability to virtually maneuver a large commercial ship alone was worth the visit. The lay out of the Museum is easy to follow and keeps your interest up by presenting a coherent story using artifacts, multimedia and story telling in such an engaging way you will be mesmerized. Layers of maritime history are... More

Great museum and I am not usually a fan of Maritime Museums. It is the best one I have ever visited. It could be overwhelming as it has 9 floors and 1/2 floors. There is something for everyone there. We started from the top and worked our way down. It takes at least 2 hours. We were there at the... More

Easy location to find, Private collection museum, full day recommended. Pass out available. Food on site is great, but there are many local bistros and cafes near by the museum. Discount for UK service men. 10 floors of exhibits including two midget submarines from WW2. Books available in English, fantastic technical bookshop and shop. Staff English speaking and extremely knowledgeable... More
