The Deutsches Schiffahrtsmuseum (DSM) was founded in Bremerhaven in 1971 to replace the Museum of Marine Science in Berlin, which had been destroyed during World War II. Its task is to collect, record, research and present documents and artefacts pertaining to German maritime history. For this purpose, the DSM is equipped with laboratories and technical facilities for the examination, conservation and restoration of different types of water craft as well as other objects. It also houses a wide range of collections and a dedicated archive and specialist library with adjacent reading room.The museum consists of the building planned by Hans Scharoun as well as several museum ships in the Old Harbor of Bremerhaven, including the Seute Deern windjammer and the Wilhelm Bauer U-boat.
