The International Maritime Museum Hamburg


The International Maritime Museum Hamburg is located in a former harbour warehouse (Kaispeicher) in the HafenCity of Hamburg (Hamburger Speicherstadt). It was opened in 2008 and exhibits the extensive maritime collection of Peter Tamm. On display are numerous ship models, paintings, uniforms, weapons and construction plans. The building has ten floors with specific topics: ship building, sailing ships, navies of the world, marine research and maritime art.


There is more information on the homepage of the Internationalen Maritimen Museum Hamburg and in a Wikipedia-article.


I include photos of two fine ship models: the English galleon "Bull" of 1546 and the  Brandenburg Frigate "Friedrich Wilhelm zu Pferde" of 1681.
