Exhibitions and Galleries, Museums, Historical Buildings

14,000 years of eventful history on the southern Baltic coast on both sides of the Oder are presented between the former Franciscan church and the city wall - in an award-winning ensemble of buildings that impressively combines Gothic, classicist and contemporary architecture. The valuable collection of paintings presents works by renowned painters such as Caspar David Friedrich, Frans Hals, Philipp Otto Runge, Max Liebermann, Max Pechstein and Vincent van Gogh.

Various exhibits paint a multifaceted picture of the development of Pomerania since the first hunters and gatherers. An impressive highlight is the unique 30 m2 Croy carpet, a testimony to the high culture at the court of the Griffins, the Pomeranian ruling dynasty. After the Thirty Years' War, Sweden and Brandenburg ruled parts of Pomerania for almost 200 years. Finally, during Prussian rule, fishing villages became fashionable spas. The 20th century, with its wars, multiple system breaks and the huge population exchange, was perhaps the biggest turning point in the region's history. The exhibition shows the many facets of these breaks and continuities. In addition to meaningful objects, elaborate media stations and installations offer biographical approaches to individual themes.

A glass walkway connects the four buildings of the museum complex and leads directly to the picture gallery. Caspar David Friedrich, Vincent van Gogh & Co. also welcome you during the construction work on the Gallery of Romanticism. Travel with Friedrich on a painting to the ruins of Eldena and the Giant Mountains, gaze into a Pomeranian barn painted in glowing colors with Karl Schmidt-Rottluff or glide past Swinemünde in the moonlight on the Oder with the Norwegian Johan Christian Dahl ... Your favorite painting is sure to be there and is looking forward to a visit! If you've seen a lot, you have to take a break. The Franciscan monastery garden, the museum store and the museum restaurant "Natürlich Büttners" - Restaurant & Manufaktur invite you to do just that.
