We like learning about the places we visit - especially historically. This museum in a home from the first decade of the 1700s provided a great view of what the wharf looked like during the 400 years when fish were the primary export. The organization, numbers, and lives of those involved were all fascinating. The museum has a lot of written material on the walls, so it will be difficult to visit if busy. (We came really early on our rainy day so crowds didn't catch up till later.) They also have a shuttle bus to their 'other' building (also quite interesting) and to a fish museum (affiliated) which is included in the price of the ticket. Lots of reading, but worth a couple hours when it rains.

My husband,the history buff enjoyed this a bit more than I did, but it made for a pleasant day. We took advantage of the 3 parts.....the Assembly house and the Fishing museum as well. They give complimentary free bus service between the 3 buildings which made a a nice respite and rest. It’s in the price of your tickets so you might as well enjoy it!

I was on a guided tour at the Hanseatic Museum. The guide told us about the life of the German merchants at the hanseatic time. Very interesting information.

Had a great guided tour around the museum. Lots of interesting history to see and our guide was excellent telling us all about the people who had inhabited the houses. Would say this one was a must.

Intact venue from the days of Hanseatic merchants. Plenty of artifacts, and beds built into cupboards. A wonderful glimpse into the past. Staircases may be too difficult for some
