Be it travel to America or Germany – we consider our tours to be heritage projects and sometimes even special social and emotional adventures. Be it travel, exhibits, web-based documentation or publications we consider this ways and means of the brockerage of culture. In the overview of heritage projects you will therefore find some of these tours e.g. theme orientated cruises or excursions in Germany for US museum specialists or genealogists.
There are some projects that deserve special recognition. Dr. Grams was among the project developers of the EXPO 2000 project „ Emigration via Bremen and Bremerhaven“ and was curator of the exhibit „Abenteuer Spurensuche“. The team of Research and Travel has developed concepts for the German Emigration Center in Bremerhaven and has carried out biographical research for their exhibit.
