Full description
Take a voyage of discovery across nine 'decks' at the impressive International Maritime Museum. Housed inside the oldest surviving warehouse in Hamburg, the museum gives you a comprehensive view of the sea and oceans, and how cultures have explored them throughout the millennia. Meet pirates, find out how captains mastered navigation, look at hundreds of nautical uniforms and connect with Hamburg's important nautical history. The exhibition includes more than 40,000 pieces, making it the world's largest private maritime collection. An absolute highlight of this museum is the floor dedicated to marine biology research. This portion of the exhibit was developed in collaboration with leading scientific institutions and is constantly updated. Research instruments, samples from the sea bed, films taken by diving robots, an actual wall of ice and fascinating underwater audio samples deliver a vivid impression of the seas.

Very interesting setup! The museum, which has a total of 9 floors, not only has something to offer for "naval history owners", but also deals with generally historically relevant events and processes. The price is a bit expensive, but you can really look at a wide variety of exhibits for 3 hours without any problems and it doesn't get boring

A museum of 9 floors, very well presented, each floor has its focus. We started on the 9th floor and were overwhelmed by the 550,000 smallest boats. After 2 hours (on the 7th floor) we were able to have a coffee on the ground floor, there are very nice waitresses serving. It has big, small ships, uniforms, impressive films are shown, witnesses in speech and writing. After admiring up to the 4th floor we ate a little something on the ground floor, it was very nice. Strengthened, we marveled at the ships in gold and silver, a large ship made of Lego blocks. This museum is really a stunner. A big compliment to the whole team for the great presentation. We will definitely tell our friends and acquaintances about this museum.

The museum is housed in an 8-9 storey high beautifully restored warehouse building with section divisions of items on each floor. The exhibition spans a very wide range in shipping with topics from the dawn of time and up to today's Shipping activities. As pearls, i.a. mention the beautiful marine paintings on the 5th floor, where the Danish classic maritime painters are beautifully represented. The section on World War II is also extremely exciting with beautiful models of the most famous German as well as allied naval ships (Bismarck, Tirpitz, Hood and many many more). We visited the museum for 4 hours, but you never finish here. The collection is impressively large and clear, set up with the usual German thoroughness. It probably appeals first and foremost to the 'boys' - both the young and the old, but the girls should not be fooled. Just watch to get going everyone.
