Ballinstadt - Review
A museum on emigration... that’s not something you hear of too often outside of New York’s Ellis Museum. It was only recently opened in 2005. Still, the museum has come to carry much meaning for the descendents of the citizens of Hamburg, which welcomes back the current generation with an easy way to access their ancestry. They say gong throught the museum is like having your own personal history come to life. The exhibits are excellent and very well detailed, and include shipping records. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hamburg itinerary 2 days.
- The cafe nearby is pretty good, and a good way to take a break in digging through your roots.

Ballinstadt, Hamburg Reviews
Overall worth the visit, but be aware of remoteness of the location (which however is revealing in itself because foreign emigrants passing through were kept afar on purpose) and the fact only a small -- and hopelessly over-restored -- part of the original site exists. The exhibition focuses maybe a little too much on a "message" as opposed to just the emigration history linked to the site itself. Also lots of spelling mistakes.
Interesting place to visit, sign posts right outside the train station would be helpful pointing in the direction would benefit tourists, some interesting displays, worth a visit if history is an interest.
Nice, helpful staff. Well thought out museum.
Interesting with great booklet in English
Very interesting place. You can learn almost everything about the lives of the emigrants.
