    Mankind & the Sea – achieving more together

    The German Maritime Museum is locally and globally networked, and enjoys the engagement of many people. Friends, sponsors and cooperation partners are all on board with us. Whether as a member in a promotional body, collaboration in a working group or as a sponsor – there are countless ways for you to help shape the work of the DSM. For thematic exhibitions, the DSM cooperates with partners such as the University of Bremen or the Alfred Wegener Institute. Conversely, we are involved as a partner in various national and international projects. We thank all our friends, sponsors and partners for the enrichment of our joint work and exciting educational offerings.

    Your knowledge counts


    Be a part of it – Join in!

    There's a lot of maritime knowledge in the coastal city of Bremerhaven. This knowledge is important – for us and for all who come to visit us. School children, citizen scientists, contemporary witnesses and other interested parties are all involved in various projects, clubs and events on and around the themes of our German Maritime Museum. We warmly thank all those who are committed to our museum in this or other ways, and invite everyone else to join in and become part of the community. Please feel free to contact us.

    Ships' Data List Working Circle (AK Schiffsdatenliste)

    The working circle is composed of specialists for shipping technology and interested amateurs. The goal is the development and extension of a collection of descriptions of various ship types in a digital data archive.

    The History Workshop aims at allowing citizens to participate in the exhibition via interviews on specific themes with their own personal memories. The History Workshop takes place at irregular intervals. Please watch out for our invitations in this regard in the daily newspapers and on our homepage.

    GRÖNLAND crew

    The crew of the northern sailing ship GRÖNLAND is made up of people who are interested in sailing and in maritime research, and who have some hand-working skills.
