About twenty ships transformed into museums can be visited at the Oevelgönne museum port. Among them are German and Dutch flat-bottom ships, steam tugs and barges. There is also a steam crane and a port ferry that has been converted into a cafe. The port's attraction is also the former Elbe 3 lighthouse. Ships have not only been carefully restored, but also embark on occasional cruises.
The museum was founded in 1976 by a private non-profit association, which set itself the task of recreating former commercial vessels and keeping them afloat. They come primarily from the period from 1880 to 1960. Some of the ships anchored here are faithful reconstructions of ships that have been sunk or destroyed, recreated over the years of painstaking work, using historical literature, models and drawings. Their restaurant aims to preserve and pass on the sailing and steam traditions.
