Absolutely loved this museum. Taking you through the process of emigration from Germany to New York, it is interactive and so well set up. Loved it from start to finish, and definitely a must see if in Bremerhaven.
I was really looking forward to this and especially arranged our travel to include it. My ancestors emigrated from Germany and so was looking forward to finding some records at least. Unfortunately although there were a few displays of interest to my era (1840's) no...More
I really enjoyed this well designed, immersive museum. It’s been made with real attention to detail and following particular characters along the way really brings the emigrant experience to life. I think it would be brilliant for children and teenagers.
This is one of the best designed and presented museums I’ve been to. Take a fascinating trip into the lives of emigrants who’s journeys have shaped the world we have today.

Well curated museum which recreates the experience of emigration from boarding a ship to arriving in a new land. Impressively well done and backed up by the ability to research your own family history. Also remarkable is the section of Germany as immigration destination.
This museum is a must-see for anyone interested in the history of European emigration in the 19th and 20th century. Although the entrance is a bit costly, it is definitely worth the visit. With your ticket, an emigrant's and an immigrant's profiles are attributed to...More
My German friends brought me here. Although I’m an American with Scottish roots, the museum was no less emotional for me. They way they capture specific lives of some Germans who immigrated to America is truly amazing. They really help you understand the anguish these...More
It is some considerable distance from the main railway station. You would do better to catch a bys to the waterfront and then It is fairly central to most stops once you get to the waterfront. Getting to that area by taxi... More
