Museum surprises

You shouldn't skip museums in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern either: The Ozeaneum in Stralsund, the Darwineum in Rostock or the Pommersche Landesmuseum (Pomeranian State Museum) in Greifswald provides everything you need for a great and instructive day out.

The modern milestones of a museum tour through Mecklenburg-Vorpommern are architectural gems: Visitors are lastingly impressed by the curved shapes of the Ozeaneum, Müritzeum and Darwineum and the permanent and changing exhibitions welcome in more visitors every year. The Art Museum in Ahrenshoop is composed of five concrete bodies, adopting the shape and size of the typical local fishing and captains' houses. They artfully meld into a sculptural building wrapped in a pleated architectural bronze.

Many museums have grown up over the decades where they belong: A maritime museum is on a boat at the quayside on the Warnow. The Gerhart-Hauptmann-Museum is, of course, in the writer's house in Kloster on Hiddensee. The archaeological open-air museum Groß Raden naturally arose where an old Slavic settlement used to be a thousand years ago.

Touching allowed!
The many varied insights into history, technology and natural science and the visual arts generate lasting experiences – and often in several different subject areas at the same time. So, you can enjoy a day out together all the more because these organically grown museums are surrounded by the right shops, the nicest tours and the best restaurants. But why then is there an aviation museum in Anklam, a bible centre in Barth and a museum about the Volhynia people from the Ukraine in Linstow? Find out why! But there is one thing you can be sure of: They go very well together.
