Go on an exciting journey and experience the history of immigration and emigration over four epochs in the BallinStadt Hamburg Emigration Museum. In a total of three houses on 2,500 sqm, you will accompany in our museum in Hamburg people who emigrated with wishes and dreams they took with them on their way to a new home. Get to know Albert Ballin, the founder of the emigration halls in Hamburg at the time, and follow the traces of your ancestors in the family research center of BallinStadt.
The Emigration Museum BallinStadt Hamburg focuses on emigration through Hamburg (from 1850 to 1934) and the development of migration over four historical epochs, always accompanied by human cravings, fates and stories.
The reasons for migration are still timeless. Escape from war, hunger and persecution or just simply a thirst for adventure, curiosity and the dream of a new (better) life were the motivation for emigration and immigration then and now.
