Friends of the Museum

The Peter Tamm Sen. Foundation was founded on December 10th 2002 and operates the International Maritime Museum. The members of the “Freundeskreis des Internationalen Maritimen Museums Hamburg e.V.” provide moral as well as material support to the work of the private Foundation. By maintaining an involvement on an annual basis the “Freundeskreis” contributes to special exhibitions, lectures and learning programs for children and young people. For apart from enjoying mutual communication its members want to fill especially the young generation with enthusiasm for maritime topics.

We invite everyone feeling attracted by maritime world history and international seafaring to join the “Freundeskreis” and to support our museum. As our Friend you will receive a membership card, which offers free entrance to the Maritime Museum all year. In addition to that we invite you to exclusive events, excursions and workshops.

The “Freundeskreis des Internationalen Maritimen Museums Hamburg e.V.” was founded in 2005 by Prof. Peter Tamm, Tom Kemcke and Dr. Andreas Costard. Within the first five years more than 600 members joined, among them numerous companies and firms located in the HafenCity. A vital network arose, which operates even beyond the museum.

We gladly provide you with more information about our “Freundeskreis”.
