There is a slew of fascinating artifacts - from furniture to spectacles, and particularly graphic syphilis exhibit - that detail both the progress and history of medicine.

The Museum of History Hamburg was founded in 1908 by Fritz Schumacher, on the site of the former Bastion Henricus, a section of the Baroque fortifications built between 1616 and 1625 by the Dutch Jan van Valckenborgh to make the city impregnable. The extensive collection ranges from the beginning of Hamburg between the 19th and the present. The exhibition extends over 1,000 square meters and documents the culture and everyday life in Hamburg, lovingly replicated. "Life during the imperial period", "Life under the swastika", "Hamburg in the war" and "ups and downs in the economic miracle" are some of the themes dealt with in these reconstructions and I assure you that it is a real dive into the history of the city.
