This museum is perfect to visit on a colder day in Hamburg. You get a discount if you have a Hamburg Card. The museum is a bit old style, meaning it's a lot of normal displays without much interaction. If you like model building however,...More

Thank you for visiting and the review! We have been working for a long time in the matter of the English translations. I've been informed that the texts are almost complete now. Our aim is to be a copletely bilingual museum before this summer.

Lots of well done exhibits. Ship, harbor, and plane models are plentiful and impressive. It takes much stamina to see it all. Tip: Ride the elevator to top floor and work your way down.

Wow! What a great place, even if you don’t like ships that much. The museum runs over 9 floors and is a must when visiting Hamburg (or even when you live here like I do). It covers maritime history from its beginnings to the present...More

A vast museum covering 10 floors and is one of Hamburg's finest attractions. From tiny miniatures to giant replicas, this museum has it all. A good 3-4 hours will be required to leisurely stroll through and admire all the exhibits. Apart from ships, the museum...More

Amazing building and a great maritime collection. Huge collection infact with many many models of boats...perhaps too many for us. But worth a visit. There are some interactive exhibits but not that many.
