Take in history, culture, and nature all at once by immersing yourself in life on distant continents at Ubersee-Museum, a natural history and ethnographic museum. The museum has a 100-year history, originally presenting an exhibit called The World Under One Umbrella. Today, collections focus on ethnology, trade, and natural history through animal dioramas and real plants. The permanent exhibits are organized by continent. Additional permanent exhibits include What Makes the World Go Round, where you can explore global phenomena and issues, and Bremen--Trade City by the River, which tells about the economic history of the city.

A really great museum right in downtown Bremen next to the train station. It has great special exhibits that are very well presented and fun to walk through and see. The permanent exhibits are also very good, and it is always nice to walk through and see the pieces they have. The cafe is nice and offers a good break to relax. Sometimes the exhibits are all in German, but with how well they are presented I have not had any trouble enjoying them despite not knowing the language!
It is a small but very nice museum with one minute walking distance from Bremen main train station. There is an Antarctic exhibition on the show at the moment to April. It is also really good for kids. If you happen to be in Bremen you should never miss this museum ;)
