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.

With just one click, technical terms from the fields of marine engineering and shipping can be quickly translated from German into English and vice versa.
In the framework of provenance research, the German Maritime Museum discovered that the single-cylinder four-stroke engine was unlawfully confiscated from the former company owners during the Nazi era.
The DSM's research work on the whereabouts of Nazi looted property will be extended to Hamburg and financially supported by the German Center for Cultural Heritage Losses.
