The German Emigration Center is Europe’s largest and most modern museum on the topic of migration. You can follow the paths of 7 million Europeans who left their homeland via the port of Bremerhaven, in search of a better life in the New World. You can even begin a search for your own ancestors using the museum's state-of-the-art research facilities. Your electronic boarding pass allows you to embark on a journey of 300 years of immigration and emigration history. Each iCard contains the story of an individual who emigrated to the New World. The iCard also activates many audio stations and interactive displays. Equipped with the iCard, you will embark on an unforgettable journey through time and experience the stories of the emigrants firsthand. At the quay, you will meet emigrants from various European countries. Learn about how they experienced an emotional moment of farewell and departure to an unknown country. Together with them you will then board a ship, getting a glimpse of life aboard three eras of passenger shipping, for example, onboard the ocean liner Columbus in 1929. Having arrived at the immigration station on Ellis Island, you now have to undergo an immigration test at the legal desk. With the entry permit in hand, you will continue your journey to Grand Central in New York. Here, you will learn more about the life of the emigrants in the New World. Dive deeper into the history and factors of migration as you experience the various exhibition halls. Once you have completed the journey and learned all about the emigration process, you can embark on a personal search for emigrated ancestors in the Family Research room.

What people are saying about Bremerhaven

It was extremely good and friendly organization and support in the museum. The exhibition is impressive in conveying the experiences, the individual fates of the emigrants through the centuries. As visitors, we were taken very closely into the experience. Important and good, however, is also the discussion, the look at immigrants and the questions about how we judge things politically. Strengthening the awareness that migration and migratory movements are something very normal in human history, for different reasons, and that the earth is there for all of us. The food in the restaurant was very tasty, but certainly not for every budget. Overall a very nice experience that we shared with our 15 year old grandson. For him, the search for our ancestors who emigrated and whose descendants he met at the big family reunions was very exciting

A great interactive museum with many touching insights. You walk in the footsteps of an emigrant assigned to you personally. Despite a 3-hour stay in the museum, there was far too little time for everything. The personal examination of the topic, as well as answering the questions in the extra area, must take place on the next visit! We will be back! For refreshment, there was delicious fish soup in the outdoor area of the restaurant... Although it is a popular and well-visited museum, it never felt overcrowded. Being there first thing in the morning at 10 a.m. is definitely a good tip. We can highly recommend it.

A very creative setup with audio, visual and informative displays to engage the mind and help place you in the historical moment.
