Re: The International Maritime Museum in Hamburg has reopened!
I have visited the Tamm Museum three times and there are large a number of duplicate models on display. These are mainly warships. This is a must visit for any collector.
At around the time of opening, it was said that the collection numbered around 58000 models but not all of those were 1/1250 scale ship models. Indeed, I was told by one dealer that Peter Tamm bought two of every model but most of the 1/1250 scale ship models on display were not duplicated. Another interesting "fact" that I was told on the first occasion that I visited Hamburg was that the bulk of the collection had been purchased over a seven year period!
The International Maritime Museum in Hamburg has reopened!

PS: How many miniature models are there actually in the Peter Tamm collection?
