In a prominent location on Schwerin Lake, visitors will find a top collection of Dutch paintings, as well as paintings from the 16th to the 21st century and works of handicrafts and graphic art.

The Staatliches Museum Schwerin will be temporarily closed due to construction work.

The Staatliches Museum Schwerin is characterized by their top collection of 17th and 18th century Dutch painting. The dukes of Mecklenburg assembled one of the highest-ranking European collections of Dutch and Flemish painting from the 17th to 18th centuries. They acquired works of art by now world-famous masters such as Rubens, Rembrandt, Jan Brueghel the Elder and Frans Hals.

With 34 paintings and numerous hand drawings, the State Palaces, Gardens and Art Collections of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern own the world's largest collection of works by the French animal painter Jean-Baptist Oudry, including the famous rhinoceros lady Clara. Works of the 20th century by Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth, Nam June Paik and Wolfgang Mattheuer enrich the collection.

The collection is rounded out by numerous graphic and handicraft pieces, the Ernst Barlach Foundation Bölkow and Germany's largest collection of works by Marcel Duchamp. Since August 2013, the gallery has housed the only Uecker collection in northern Germany.

The Gesamtkunstwerk Museum, in its unity of building and collection, is hardly comparable with other houses in Germany. In addition to the permanent collections, it offers changing exhibitions in which new aspects of art history are staged.
