The Übersee-Museum Bremen presents collections focused on ethnology, trade and natural history and connects them to a harmonious experience, which is unique in Europe. Visitors can “travel” to distant continents and discover the fascinating cultures and natural environments with unique exhibits from across the world, masterful animal dioramas and real plants. Some stations also invite to try something out yourself – it’s a museum for big and small, and for all senses! A brief overview of the history of the museum and it’s connection to the Bremen Society for Natural Sciences and ICYMARE is given here.

If you need even more arguments to convince you to visit the museum, please check out the museum homepage.
