Birte Stüve

”Sailing the world by ship has never been one of my dreams. But to convey to others why we humans do it and what it means to us, all the more; it's a great task!“

Birte Stüve, head of education


About the person
Birte Stüve studied Cultural Studies, German Studies and Sociology at the University of Bremen. A traineeship at the German Museum of Technology in Berlin marked her entry into the museum world. Since then, her work has focused on museum education. In addition to positions at the Übersee-Museum Bremen and Museum Lüneburg, she has also worked as a freelance cultural mediator for museums and as a lecturer in museum education.
Since 2016, Birte Stüve has been head of the Education & Outreach department at the DSM. She is working there on the goal of making the DSM a place where research on maritime issues can be experienced. Audience orientation and participation play a central role in this.
