Overview
More
Grippers, bales of rubber, coffee-sacks, sampling implements: The Speicherstadtmuseum is located on the ground floor of a red-brick warehouse that is over a 120 years old (in the authentic surroundings of the dockland warehouse district in the former free-port). Here typical goods and tools collected from traditional warehouse companies and business premises of the warehouse district are exhibited. Historical photos and maps/plans illustrate the changes of over a century in this worldwide unique historical monument. Further topics are: coffee- and tea-trading as well as lighter-boating (supplying the warehouses with goods by transport on cargo barges).The engaging and interactive exhibition emphasises the skills and ingenuity of the work of warehousemen.

Stumbled upon this interesting museum which honours the history of this warehouse dock area. There is limited English translation but it's worth looking at the video and the displays. There is also a small coffee shop with tasty filter coffee. . Allow approx one hour...More

Before entering the museum the staff told me that there is information in English. Yes there is, but only limited. For every 3~4 paragraphs in German there is one summarizing paragraph in English, and the specific items only had captions in German, so I was...More

The Speicherstadt is the world's largest contiguous warehouse complex. Built in 1883, the district received historic monument protection in 1991. The museum is located in the Hamburg free port area between Deichtorhallen and Baumwall. This is a very small open floor plan museum. Because of...More

How do they get away with calling this a museum? Seriously. One dusty old room with an open floor plan and a few antiques. A few paragraphs written only in German. Yup, that's it. No maps, videos or interactive displays. No drawings of spices plants....More
