A century ago, more than 5 million people migrated from Hamburg's Port to the New World looking for a new start in life to make money and to find hapinness. Before the last departure, “Hamburg's Emigrant Hall” was then called - the “Port of Dreams".
A museum was built on the historic floor of the former halls. It consists of 3 buildings:
- House No. 1: Lobby, information desk, ticket office, special exhibitions, start point for the “Simmigrant”, the emigrant's game
- House No. 2: Main interactive exhibition
- House No.3: Reception at the Emigrant's hall, dormitories, family research, restaurant, shop
At the Emigrant's Museum the stories, wishes, dreams and hopes of emigrants will be brought back to life. Children visiting the museum can also become emigrants through the interactive "Simmigrant" game.
The award winning BalliStadt concept offers 2,000 sqm of exhibition space with interactive elements, multimedia experience stations and more than 1,500 original exhibits. Here you can learn everything you need to know about Albert Ballin, the founder of the former emigrant halls and namesake of the museum.
