The Overseas Museum in Bremen (German: Übersee Museum Bremen) is a Natural History and ethnographic museum in northern Germany. In an integrated exhibition of Nature, Culture and Trading, the museum presents aspects of overseas regions with permanent exhibitions relating to Asia, South Pacific/Oceania, Americas and Africa. The building is protected by the monument protection act.[1]


In 1875, the collections of the Bremen Natural History Society became the property of the city of Bremen.
