The Cap San Diego is the largest museum-ship (Museumsschiff Cap San Diego) in the world, and it could still sail to distant destinations. The "Cap San Diego" is also known as the "White Swan of the South Atlantic” because of its extraordinary elegance.
In addition to explaining the history of navigation, the museum also deals with the emotions of the emigrants who left Europe between 1850 and 1934 from the port of Hamburg, the "gateway to the world". In 84 years about five million passengers emigrated on this ship.
Since 1986 it has been moored at the Überseebrücke in Hamburg.
