Discovering port history!
The Hafenmuseum 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. Until the end of the 1960s, the South America traffic was processed on the Bremen quay. Today, the terminal buildings have a totally different structure due to the use of containers. The Hafenmuseum Hamburg has rented the southern part of the shed 50 A and the adjacent open-air exhibition space from the foundation Hamburg Maritime. A variety of exhibits is shown here. The collection comprises examples of the material culture from the last 100 years such as the handling of goods, shipping, shipbuilding and sea engineering. The floating objects of the museum are accessible across the pontoon bridge. Voluntary experts explain the complete collection: Experts having spent their entire working life in the port. Even today, some are still working there. Freelancers support them introducing above all young visitors to the exciting history of the port and to changes of work.
