Apart from the library
and a depot, the German Maritime Museum also maintains extensive archives
with technical drawings, nautical
charts, photographs, films,
prints, posters, as
well as all kinds of documents and records. A
systematic catalogue means that one can always
gain immediate access to the records.
Thematically, the main emphasis
of the archives is on the areas of merchant shipping, merchant shipbuilding
and fishing. The collections on the navy and official shipping, for example
of the water and shipping authorities, are also significant, but less extensive.
Access to the archives
The archives of the German Maritime Museum
are available for use in any research work but it is necessary to arrange
an appointment in advance.
