There is about 9 floors to this museum focusing on different aspects of maritime. We went on a Monday morning and virtually had the place to ourselves! Would recommend if you are into Maritime history as lots to see.

Great Museum, really a must see in Hamburg. 9 decks of all you may want to know about ships, navigation, marine research.... Loved the 9th deck, with all the miniatures. A great trip for every age.
