Daycare and school programs of the German Maritime Museum


Experiencing, researching and learning at German Maritime Museum


Have your kindergarten kids ever been on a paddle steamer? Have your pupils ever marvelled at a cog more than 600 years old?

In the German Maritime Museum all this is possible. Hundreds of valuable objects from the world of shipping, including ship models, paintings, models to touch and to experiment, provide exciting insights into maritime history. Be there with your school class.

We offer lively teaching formats on maritime topics, always linked to learning fields and contents from the school curricula or the framework plan for education and training in the elementary sector. Individual and active acquisition of knowledge and self-directed, cooperative and creative learning are in the foreground. Welcome on board!
