Coffee, Tea and Co.
A “hands-on” museum! Grippers, bales of rubber, coffee-sacks, sampling implements: The Speicherstadtmuseum is located on two floors of a red-brick warehouse that is over a hundred years old (in the authentic surroundings of the dockland warehouse district in the former free-port) where typical goods and tools collected from traditional warehouse companies and business premises of the warehouse district are exhibited. Historical photos and maps/plans illustrate (the social and economic) changes of over a century in this worldwide unique historical monument.
Further topics are: coffee- and tea-trading as well as lighter-boating (supplying the warehouses with goods by transport on (cargo) barges).
The engaging and interactive exhibition emphasises the skills and ingenuity of the work of warehousemen.
The „Speicherstadtmuseum“ (Dockland Museum) is a privately run branch of the “Museum der Arbeit“ (Labour Museum).
