You could spend all day in here! The museum has a lovely feel to it, is very well laid out and most things have an English translation. Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in boats & worth a visit for everyone else!

Make sure you leave plenty of time to visit this museum! Tons of items spread across ten floors, personally my favourite areas were the model ships, merchant shipping and the navy collection. Definitely visit here if you have any interest in the maritime industry!

You need at least several hours to visit and see most. However, if you want a audio guide the 3,50 euro will not do as one needs to deposit a official government id as well. If you object you will experience German service attitude. No...More
