"Discover Schliemann's world" - under this credo, the Schliemann Museum in Ankershagen, Mecklenburg, will be guiding visitors through Heinrich Schliemann's multifaceted life with a new exhibition starting in June 2019.

Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890), who spent eight years of his childhood in Ankershagen, is memorialized here. Even from a distance, a wooden walk-on Trojan horse greets the guests.

The Heinrich Schliemann Museum in Ankershagen was established in 1980 in the former parental home of the famous archaeologist, a parsonage from the 18th century. In the Mecklenburg village of Ankershagen in the Müritz district, the world-famous archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann spent eight years of his childhood from 1823-1831. When he was barely eight years old, he is said to have made the decision here to excavate Troy one day. Many of the "wonders" of the site described by Schliemann in his autobiography are still preserved today, for example the 13th century village church, the Bronze Age burial mound on the Glockenberg and the robber baron's castle of Henning Bradenkierl.

The permanent exhibition on the ground floor of the old parsonage from the 18th century follows Schliemann's development from his childhood in Mecklenburg through his years as a merchant all over the world to the excavations in Turkey and Greece including the original finds from Troy and replicas from the "Treasure of Priam". The Heinrich Schliemann Museum is a center of international Schliemann research and one of 20 important cultural memorial sites in Germany with international appeal. Recently, visitors have been able to embark on a Schliemann hiking trail.
