Deutsches Auswandererhaus Bremerhaven / German Emigration Center Bremerhaven
Europe's largest and most modern theme museum on the topic of emigration and winner of the prestigious award “European Museum of the Year 2007”. From the historically significant New Harbor in Bremerhaven more than 7 million people boarded a ship for the New World between 1830 and 1974. Follow the paths of the emigrants using authentic biographies and experience emigration hands-on - and in our new wing, open since April 2012, learn about the life stories of people who have made Germany their home since the 17th century. Travel through the centuries and embark on a personal search for your own family roots in our available online databases.
