A visit to the Hanseatic City of Hamburg should also lead travellers to the St. Pauli Museum. It is located in the eponymous district at Davidstrasse 17 and is easily accessible by public transport. Up to three million exhibits reveal a living picture of the district's history up to the present day. The St. Pauli Museum is surely one of the ones most worth seeing if you wish to gain insights into the life and development of this district.

The St. Pauli Museum considers itself a contemporary centre for recording history, yet its objectives are also in the area of district work and education. The permanent exhibition "Stories Become History" vividly demonstrates that the life of the district is the result of its residents and their backgrounds.

The museum provides a total of 160 sqm of exhibition space, and is based on an extensive collection by Günter Zint, a press photographer. Visitors can admire the world's largest collection of photos, documents and other exhibits relating to St. Pauli. The historic development of this well-known Hamburg district is thus vividly explained from the Middle Ages to the present.
