This innovative museum tackles the previously under-represented topic of European emigration from Germany. The area on which the museum now stands was once filled with temporary housing units that held millions of people over the course of about 40 years from the turn of the 20th century. These men and women came from across Europe to seek transport with the HAPAG lines that left from Hamburg. Now, the museum offers visitors a chance to look back in time and learn about the lives of the people who made makeshift homes at this facility. With complete digitalized passenger lists and interactive displays, the exhibits showcase the rich history of BallinStadt and the trials of the many emigrants who passed through its doors.
