Museums

The museum in the historic school building in Rankwitz tells about everyday life and work of past generations before the extensive motorization and electrification in Lieper Winkel. The world of fishermen, craftsmen and farmers becomes tangible here in an entertaining way.

Almost untouched nature meets the visitors in the Achterland on Usedom. The seclusion and tranquility are a welcome change from the busy Baltic resorts. Let yourself be carried away into this other world behind the scenes and take a trip back in time. Experience new things, but also many familiar and now and then forgotten things from your own family history. The museum in the historic school building in Rankwitz tells about everyday life and work of past generations before the extensive motorization and electrification in Lieper Winkel. The world of fishermen, craftsmen and farmers becomes tangible here in an entertaining way. The more than thousand exhibits are mostly originals from the region. The more recent exhibits in particular seem familiar and evoke memories of one's own childhood. Authentic tools, machines, household appliances, photos and documents allow visitors to directly experience the overwhelming contrast to today.
The museum is located directly at the entrance to the village. Parking is available at the house. Attention: The address "Dorfstraße 1" is currently not displayed correctly on common internet map services.
