Klimahaus Bremerhaven 8° Ost
Klimahaus Bremerhaven 8° Ost combines the best of a science center, a climate museum, and a theme park. The museum takes visitors on an interactive journey across five simulated continents to experience the world’s climate extremes, from the humidity of the tropics to the icy summits of the Swiss Alps.
The cutting-edge architecture of Klimahaus Bremerhaven 8° Ost harbors one of Europe’s most state-of-the-art climate museums. Explore on your own, or join a public tour to learn additional facts and details about the exhibits. After you’ve experienced several different climates, test your strategic skills at the World Future Lab, which gives you the chance to save a South Seas island from the negative effects of climate change.
