Wanderlust grabs every human being once in their lives – traveling to other countries, emigrating, getting to know new people, cultures and languages ??… But wanderlust does not always mean recreation and holidays. At the beginning of the last century, many people left the European mainland via Hamburg in the direction of the New World for lack of existance – with them traveled the hope for a better life in North or South America. In BallinStadt, the stories of these emigrants come to life again.
BallinStadt is an interactive interactive exhibition for the whole family. In three original reconstructed living and sleeping pavilions, visitors can relive the stories of over five million people, who set out from Hamburg between 1850 and 1939 into a promising future. The journey takes them from departure to passage to arrival in New York, the first station in the New World. A special highlight is a family research area in which everyone can follow in the footsteps of his ancestors. In particular, the interactive game Simmigrant, which leads children through exciting video installations and games through the Emigration Museum, shows that the issue of emigration is also interesting for children.
From March 2007 to 2011 Market launch and complete PR support.
