The Hamburg Museum known as Museum für Hamburgische Geschichte, is a history museum located in the city of Hamburg in northern Germany. The museum was established at its current location in 1922, although its parent organization was started in 1839; the museum was named hamburgmuseum in 2006. It is located near the Planten un Blomen park in the center of Hamburg; the museum is reviewed among the museums of the city of Hamburg. The Society of Hamburg History, founded in 1839, started compiling the Collection of Hamburg Antiquities. First exhibits included architectural fragments of the demolished St. Mary's Cathedral and two monasteries; the main building at Holstenwall was designed by Fritz Schumacher and constructed between 1914 and 1922. The museum was built on the site of the former Bastion Henricus, a part of the baroque fortification, erected between 1616 and 1625 by the Dutchman Jan van Valckenborgh in order to make the town impregnable; the museum courtyard was damaged in the great fire in 1842 and restored in 1995.
A glass dome over the inner courtyard was completed in 1989. The glass courtyard was completed by the firm of Von Gerkan and Partners; this allowed increased museum space without an actual new building, because it allowed increased use of the courtyard. The covered courtyard was envisioned, or at least considered, as part of the original design, however the construction of the covering was deferred; the design uses a steel gridshell. The Hamburg Observatory occupied the area at the Museum from 1825 to 1912 before being moved to Bergedorf; the area was part of the old city wall defences built by the Dutchman Jan van Valckenborgh. These walls were part of Bastion Henricus, a baroque fortification built between 1616 and 1625; the museum was located at the Johanneum school. The museum became state-owned under the direction of Otto Lauffer in the early 1900s, though this was changed back in 1999. In 1978 several paintings per reported stolen from HM, they were valued at 750,000 USD at that time. Paintings that were missing included.
This was the German currency of that period. That amount converted to 2015 USD equates to a value of something like 2,725,638 U. S. dollars for comparison. The museum adopted the name hamburgmuseum, initials hm, in 2006. In 2008 the museum runs. In 2010 a pirate skull with a nail in it was stolen from HM; the skull was discovered in 1878, forensic analysis believe it to be from the 1400s. At that time it was common for pirates to be executed by being beheaded, the skull would be put on an iron stake to display the consequences of this activity. A more precise determination was attempted by the museum in 2004 by DNA analysis, but there was no further confirmation, it was thought this might be from a particular execution of 30 during the age of the Hanseatic League. The skull was stolen on January 9, 2010, it was thought it may be the skull of famous pirate Klaus Stoertebeker; the skull was added to the museum's collection in 1922. We are shocked about the theft In 2016 HM was considered as a candidate for repatriation of a century old German dog-tag.
The dog tag belonged to a soldier. Over time there is a gradual shift with some temporary exhibits also.

In hydrology, the inflow of a body of water is the source of the water in the body of water. It can refer to the average volume of incoming water in unit time, it is contrasted with outflow. All bodies of water have multiple inflows, but one inflow may predominate and be the largest source of water. However, in many cases, no single inflow will predominate and there will be multiple primary inflows. For a lake, the inflow may be a river or stream that flows into the lake. Inflow may be speaking, not flows, but rather precipitation, like rain. Inflow can be used to refer to groundwater recharge; the dictionary definition of inflow at Wiktionary
