    Quality in research, collection and communication

    The German Maritime Museum in Bremerhaven is a research museum of the  Leibniz Association, and a place of education and dialogue. Maritime questions of relevance to society as a whole are the core of our work. In researching and communicating these questions, we insist on the highest quality requirements and ensure these through a Scientific Advisory Board. The guidelines for our work are formed by international museum standards. Equal opportunities, freedom from barriers and child-friendliness are implemented in our daily work. We enter into active dialogue with our visitors and thus optimise our services and offerings.
