Museum for Hamburg History, Hamburg (must see)

The Museum for Hamburg History, rebranded as hamburgmuseum in 2006, is an attraction celebrating the rich history of this great European metropolis. Present in Hamburg since 1839, it was established at its current home, close to the Planten un Blomen park in Hamburg’s city centre, in 1922. The museum building was designed by Fritz Schumacher, the city’s former planning director. It stands on the site of the Bastion Henricus, a 17th century fortress built to safeguard the growing city. The courtyard area, damaged by fire in 1842, was fully restored as part of museum improvement works and now features a 17th century portal from the nearby St. Petri Church.

The museum hosts several temporary exhibitions on different aspects of life in the city. Recent exhibitions include a look at fashions in Hamburg from 1550 to 1920, and a tribute to the wealth of music and art produced throughout history by its residents. There are also a number of permanent installations, including walk through guides to life in medieval and pre-war Hamburg. Admission is 7.50 Euros for adults, with concessions available, including free entry for under 18s.

Operation hours: Monday - Friday: 10 am – 5 pm; Saturday- Sunday: 10 am – 6 pm; closed on Tuesdays.
