Star from 1380



The cog is the centrepiece of the museum. Behind the wreck, which is more than 600 years old, lies a research thriller: discovered by chance in 1962 in the mud of the Weser, the complex salvage took three years. Afterwards, a team of restorers assembled the 2000 individual parts. To prevent the brittle oak wood from shrinking, the wreck floated in a tank filled with preservative for 18 years; in 1999 the liquid was drained and the construction removed. The cog remains an exciting object of research for scientists from all over the world and is considered the best-preserved trading ship of the Middle Ages

New home for exhibits



Pack - unpack - arrive: The 380,000 archival records and 60,000 museum objects are in for an eventful time. By the end of the year, they will be moved bit by bit into the new research depot, which is already an eye-catcher in the fishing harbour. The wooden plank façade is reminiscent of the cog. The DSM team is facing the mammoth task of moving all the exhibits, from the button collection to the lifeboat, into the new home and assigning them a suitable place in the 2300 square metre depot.
