About the Historic Museums Hamburg

Logo Historische Museen neu The Historic Museums Hamburg, a public foundation, is one of the largest municipal and regional historical museum establishments in Europe. The museums in the foundation present the history of Hamburg and the region – from its beginnings in around 800 through to the Port City it has become today, from the port workers to the upper classes including both national and European contexts.

The foundation is made up of the three main museums – Museum für Hamburgische Geschichte, the Altonaer Museum and the Museum of Work as well as the branch museums - Port Museum Hamburg, Jenisch House, the Old Warehouse District Museum, the Grocer’s Widow’s Apartment, the Millern Guardhouse and the Heine House. The Museum Service Hamburg, the central visitor service for 22 Hamburg museums, is also part of the Historic Museums Hamburg.
