Museums

The oldest building in Ludwigslust, built around 1750 as a fountain house, houses the "Natureum am Schloss Ludwigslust". It was built to supply water to the fountains located behind the former hunting lodge. Today, the "Naturforschende Gesellschaft Mecklenburg e.V." has its headquarters here. On the first floor of the Natureum, nature and the natural history of western Mecklenburg are presented in six rooms.

During a tour, visitors first learn about general ecological relationships in nature before they can take a look at the past. This is presented by means of unique exhibits. In addition to rocks that arrived here during the Ice Age, very beautiful so-called "Sternberg cakes" and mammoth remains from Mecklenburg can be seen. Fossils from the Malliß clay pit are also on display. Which plants were the first to settle here after the ice age and which landscape zones are typical from the island of Poel to the Elbe valley, how newly immigrated plants change the habitat and which mushrooms from morels to tree mushrooms belong to the species native today, the museum guest learns in further rooms. Numerous exhibits of taxidermied birds and mammals as well as showcases with insects, snails and shells provide an insight into the native animal world.
On the upper floor of the Natureum, the history of the fountain house is presented. In addition, there are regularly changing special exhibitions, excursions through the castle park and projects for schools.

 

The Natureum is usually open on weekends from 10 am - 3 pm, and by appointment.

Masks are compulsory.
