A tip for every tourist in Bremerhaven: The Historical Museum Bremerhaven, with permanently free admission. The museum formerly known as the Morgenstern Museum is located on the banks of the Geeste river and displays the history of Bremerhaven and its surroundings. The collection was once started at the end of the 19th century by the men of Morgenstern, a home association, and was first made available to the public in Geestemünde in 1906. After various moves, today’s 4760 m2 building of the museum on the banks of the Geeste was officially opened in 1991.
Today’s permanent exhibition at the Historisches Museum Bremerhaven displays the history of Bremerhaven and the surrounding area from the first traces of human settlement 120,000 years ago to the 1960s in a total of seven areas.
