You can literally walk through the permanent exhibition of the German Harbor Museum by walking around the grounds. The exhibits inside the 50's Shed are rather small compared to the floating exhibits or the cranes on the quay, but of course they are all equally important in learning about the port's history.

On the open-air site are the first large-scale devices from the early days of containers : van carriers, which were developed to transport the “boxes” to the terminals. How this works is demonstrated regularly. The large gantry cranes that once handled transshipment between the ship and the shed line the Bremen quay.

The barge steam vacuum cleaner SAUGER IV from 1909 and the floating steam crane SAATSEE from 1917 are accessible via the pontoon system . Both large properties have steam systems that are put into operation one weekend a month. The work of the Ewerführer and life on board is shown in an exhibition on the Hamburg box barge H 11347 from 1913.

In the display depot in shed 50A, visitors can find information about goods from all over the world, ship models and the historical history of the port facilities.

The PEKING is the first visible object in the collection of the German Harbor Museum. The four-masted barque is one of the last large cargo ships that was able to compete with steam and machine ships at the beginning of the 20th century due to its speed, safety and precision. The ship served as a transport ship for saltpeter from Chile, which was in high demand at the time.

The BLEICHEN, which is a listed building and is owned by the Hamburg Maritim Foundation, represents an entire generation of cargo ships.
