Bremerhaven, some 39 miles (65 km) downstream from Bremen at the mouth of the River Weser, is not a particularly attractive town from the visitor's perspective, but it does have an interesting maritime museum, the Deutsches Schiffahrtsmuseum (German Maritime Museum), located at Hans-Scharoun-Platz 1. The museum documents the development of the German shipping industry from Roman times to the present. It is a huge museum with large displays, and it is easy to enjoy even if you are not particularly interested in shipping. The prize possession is the 1388 Hansekogge – a merchant ship discovered in the 1960s during harbor excavations. Other items of interest include staterooms from ocean liners, bridges, large-scale models, and navigational instruments. From April to October, eight historic vessels can be inspected in the open-air museum area.
