The museum has a good connection to the public transport. Please notice that the terrain is very extensive.


The museum is only partially barrier-free.


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.
