Museums

The museum of local history of the town of Boizenburg/Elbe - a museum institution, which presents worth seeing, worth knowing and interesting things from the history of the town on the river Elbe under the motto "Streiflichter kleinstädtischen Alltagsleben".

After a checkered past, the museum, founded in 1935 on the initiative of the local art association and citizens interested in history, has been presenting its collections in the listed community center at Markt 1 for several years. The exhibitions reflect various aspects of small-town everyday life. A central role is played by the town's location on the Elbe and related topics such as fishing, shipbuilding, trade and flood protection, but also its history as a border town. Selected areas of working life and stations in the lives of distinguished citizens are also presented. Special exhibitions, lectures and educational activities for children and young people complete the offer. Admission is free!

Opening hours:

Tue to Fri 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm.
Sat (May to Oct) 2-5 p.m.
Sun 2-5 p.m.

On the Elbberg, at the level of the district Vier, there is a branch of the local history museum, which presents two exhibitions on the recent past of the city on the Elbe. In the former kitchen cellar of the Boizenburg subcamp of the Neuengamme concentration camp, a documentary recalls the fate of 400 Jewish women who were forced to work in the neighboring Elbewerft shipyard during the last months of the war. It can be visited from May to October, Sat. and Sun. from 2-5 p.m. or by prior arrangement.
A second exhibition on the opposite traffic island is dedicated to the history of the inner-German border in the Boizenburg area. The exhibition panels there are freely accessible.
