Port Museum Hamburg

The Port Museum Hamburg is located in the free port on the last remaining ensemble of quay sheds being today under preservation order. The structure of the quay was built 100 year ago and once ensured the optimal handling of goods between the ship moored to the quay and the traffic on land. 

What's on

Here on the quayside, huge cranes reach for the skies and historical goods wagons roll on the original tracks of the port railway. In the port basin we see a coal-fired floating steam crane, the bulk cargo ship MS Bleichen and other interesting historic vessels.

Our services

Eat & drink

Image

“Kaffeeklappen”, a kind of canteen, existed in the Port of Hamburg since 1888. The dockers could get a warm, cheap meal there. In the 50s sheds, there were also a Kaffeeklappe called “Kaffeehalle N° 7” at Veddeler Damm / Bremer Kai which was built in 1910. Today, the museum’s Kaffeeklappe in shed 50 A supplies visitors with coffee and cake as well as with other cold and warm drinks.

Shop

Image

Our museum shop "Zampelbüdel" was named after the linen bags used by the dock workers to transport their personal belongings for daily use. Here you can buy souvenirs such as books and postcards, key rings, ship models, maritime clothing, coffee and tea varieties and many other port-related souvenirs.
The opening hours are the same as for the Port Museum.
