International Maritime Museum - Review
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.

International Maritime Museum, Hamburg Reviews
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.
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.
I did not expect this museum to be as big and vast as it is. So that was a pleasant surprise. Lots of detailed model ships and model engines that have a little plaque next to them with information. The museum has a total of 9 floors that each have a different theme. My personal favorite was floor 9, where the museums model ship collection is located. Sadly a lot of the information is only written in German and only the bigger information boards have english under them but I believe there is an English spoken tour. The museums shop is also very large and has a large collection of tiny model ships and books for sale. But be warned as most of those are very expensive and not meant for kids. Overall a lovely museum to visit if you are in Hamburg and even for someone that doesn’t really understand the German language it is lots of fun!
Easily the best maritime museum I've been to and quite possibly the best in the world. For just €9.5, you can expect to spend pretty much half of your day in here admiring the beautiful displays! They've got great coffee too. One downside is that quite a handful of displays are only in German but most of the major ones are in English at least.
Nice little spot. The museum itself is not as impressive as I would have thought for a Harbour city of Hamburg. There few nice bars and restaurants on the outside and worth going if just for the food and drinks on offer. Nice area arroimd the museum although pretty much dead on Sundays.
