What people are saying about International Maritime Museum

Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 140 reviews

A museum of 9 floors, very well presented, each floor has its focus. We started on the 9th floor and were overwhelmed by the 550,000 smallest boats. After 2 hours (on the 7th floor) we were able to have a coffee on the ground floor, there are very nice waitresses serving. It has big, small ships, uniforms, impressive films are shown, witnesses in speech and writing. After admiring up to the 4th floor we ate a little something on the ground floor, it was very nice. Strengthened, we marveled at the ships in gold and silver, a large ship made of Lego blocks. This museum is really a stunner. A big compliment to the whole team for the great presentation. We will definitely tell our friends and acquaintances about this museum.

Very interesting setup! The museum, which has a total of 9 floors, not only has something to offer for "naval history owners", but also deals with generally historically relevant events and processes. The price is a bit expensive, but you can really look at a wide variety of exhibits for 3 hours without any problems and it doesn't get boring

Very interesting and informative, far more extensive than expected. Bring time to the visit: 4 hours will fly by like nothing!

Excellent opportunity to experience the port and other points on the Elbe.

Perfect price, app worked well, and for a one day teip its amazing
