The German Emigration Center (German: Deutsches Auswandererhaus) is a museum located in Bremerhaven, Germany dedicated to the history of German emigration, especially to the United States. It is Europe’s largest theme museum about emigration. Visitors can experience the emigration process through interactive exhibits. The museum also provides access to databases of immigration records. The museum with a area of 4200 square meters opened on August 8, 2005. The design for the museum came from the Hamburg architecture studio Andreas Heller.

Since 21 April 2012, the German Emigration Center has another, newly built construction. In it, it addresses immigration to Germany since the early 18th century. It focuses on the 1960s and 1970s, with replicated stores, offices and a cinema showing thematic films.
