Trace the journey to America that millions of hopeful emigrants took by visiting the award-winning German Emigration Center, a museum that brings their courageous stories to life.

Depart from the pier for a short drive to the harbor-side German Emigration Center, a museum dedicated to the more than 7 million emigrants who sailed for the New World from Bremerhaven. The story of their journey is told in such a compelling way that the museum earned the coveted European Museum of the Year award shortly after opening.

The breadth of the exhibitions is absolutely stunning, as many of the key venues along the emigration route have been re-created. You’ll see a replica of the wharf where the emigrants said their final farewells to family and friends. There are exhibits of the cabins on their transoceanic cruises, the processing rooms on Ellis Island, and Grand Central Terminal, the gateway to America. Other details are told through dioramas that depict the everyday work life for the emigrants in places like a deli in New York or a meatpacking plant in Chicago.

Families with relatives that emigrated to the United States and beyond generously donated many of the items in the museum. Because emigration has affected so many people, the museum created a family research room. During the free time allotted after your guided visit of the museum, you may wish to embark on a personal search for your ancestors through the online data banks here.

Before returning to the pier, you’ll have approximately 75-minutes in Bremerhaven’s city center to explore on your own.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of easy to moderate walking, plus any additional walking at the guests’ discretion during free time. There are a few steps to negotiate as well as uneven and cobblestone streets in the city center. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned only to participate to the extent of their personal stamina and ability and may make arrangements with the guide to not participate in some of the walking portions of the tour. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. Guests should be prepared for the possibility of rain.
