Our main aim was to see the German U-Boat in the nearby dock, and then we just thought we would go see the Maritime museum as we were so close by. It was so interesting it took us a long time to get our group...More

The magic and mystique of sailing is captured in the German Maritime Museum, Bremerhaven. You don't just see exhibits, but get to feel the excitement, adventure and glamour of sailing. There are models, an actual ttwo-man U-boat inside and a big one in the water...More

Didn't expect too much from a museum for only 4 EU. That was my very mistake! Two hours spent in there flew without notice. Lots of ships models, medieval shipwreck, engines, weapons... And list goes on. Also, don't miss museum cafe upstairs, they serve great...More

Nice overview of German nautic history. Part was closed due to remodelling but more than enough remained to be seen to spend half a day or more.

Most important first, plan a whole day for the visit. It's huge and there is so much to see for kids as well as for adults. This is one of my favourite places to spend a day in Bremerhaven when it's raining outside.
