This is German journalist Peter Tamm’s personal collection of model ships, an activity he began in when he was six years old and has continued for about seventy years now. Opened in 2008, the museum receives about 15000 visitors a year, and that number looks to increase. 36000 items are displayed over 10 floors in beautifully thought out and well developed sections. If for nothng else, the museum is worth visiting as atestament to one man’s passion about a hobby, and what can be achieved if something is pursued diligently enough. It’s truly inspiring. Believe me, you’ll need to cover this museum in little breaks. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hamburg itinerary 3 days.
- Altona Train Station
- Shanghaiallee and Uberseeallee

Outstanding museum!! Though you should bring some time since it’s on 10 levels. Many details into the history of maritime are given with pictures, models and historical stuff! I liked it a lot - we went there during a Monday noon where there were not many people which made it quiet nice to read and get into the things. Take a look into the pictures to get an impression. Have a good time there :)
Huge and interesting. If you are an enthusiast, you can easily spend a whole day here. Approx 40% is in English. 100% in German. Price is affordable, nice discount with the Hamburg card.
A fascinating museum. It covers some nine floors and really needs the whole day to be appreciated in full. I only got as far as floor five when I had to leave to catch my flight home so I will be returning. I made use of the headphones that provided an English commentary of the exhibits, I would say that is a must if your German is not good. There is so much to see but I can't begin to explain it all here. See for yourself, you won't be disappointed
This is a highly interesting museum showcasing shipping through the ages. The large and detailed model ships are a joy to behold and there’s simply so much to learn here. The museum also makes for a good place to wait out the rains that are common in Hamburg.
Excellent museum charting maritime history from antiquity up to the present. Housed over 10 floors in a fine old warehouse building. My only criticism is that more English translations on the info cards for exhibits would be helpful for non-German speakers. This should not put anyone off though as most items speak for themselves.
