Programm for children and schools


Experience, research and learning in the museum

Have your students ever been on a whaling ship? Have they ever seen a cog more than 600 years old?

Explore with them the exciting world of research into human's manifold relationships with the sea. At the German Maritime Museum (DSM) all this is possible. Hundreds of valuable objects from the world of shipping, including ship models, paintings, models to touch and try out, provide exciting insights into maritime history. The DSM offers lively educational programmes, which can take place not only in the museum but also in the school.

COURSE AT THE MUSEUM / Programmes at the DSM
The focus of our programs in the museum is of course the many exhibits, including original ships, but also other maritime objects and ship models. All of them offer exciting insights into the relationship between humans and the sea. Individual and active acquisition of knowledge and self-directed, cooperative and creative learning are the key points.

SCHOOL IN SIGHT / A guest in the classroom
The DSM weighs anchor and comes to the classes in the school. Our programs bring the maritime world into the classroom. We have many maritime objects  in our luggage, with these the students work on different topics - actively, methodically varied and guided by our team.
