  • Fantastic museum. Showing the beginnings of Hamburg, it's historical shipping and other industries. The model railway is great to watch and operated with slick precision. The staff were all friendly and helpful. I recommend coming here if you have a couple of hours & find out about the history of the city.
  • Old building with exhibits over 3 floors. Not very well signposted where anything is, but helpful staff to advise. The museum is very traditional and doesn't offer any exciting displays to make the experience a bit more life-like and enjoyable. A bit boring really.
