A very interesting museum. Without a visit, it is impossible to understand the culture and history of this land. Unfortunately, there is not enough information inside the museum in foreign languages. We recommend that the administration make descriptions of the exhibits in different languages and an audio guide that could be downloaded to a smartphone. This is very important for foreign tourists. Also, it would be nice to provide tourists with a free WIFI

This is a great medium sized museum in the heart of Rostock. It has been recently renovated and seems like it is brand new. There are some great exhibits and it tells the story of the city. There is a new section with coins and art including the story of how Rostock lost its collection during the war and under the DDR. This area has english information available The Dutch art section is great and the lighting used to highlight the paintings is spectacular. In all museums I have visited i have never experienced the use of lighting to highlight a painting characteristics so well. It brings the art to life. Entrance is free and if you want to take pictures you can pay 3 euros. I was surprised how empty the museum was.

A fabulous historic building houses a variety of exhibitions and we spent a very pleasant hour or more exploring. Not may explanations were in English but we were still able to find the experience enjoyable. A standout was a huge wooden horse and St George slaying the dragon.

This local history museum with free entry is situated in the cloisters of a former convent. The building is austere but interesting and the museum exhibits range from toys to furniture, religious artefacts and art. We had a pleasant visit.

This former convent now holds a treasure house of medieval art and sculpture, Dutch landscape paintings, and a fascinating toy museum. It was almost empty when we visited and very hot on the upper levels but worth the trip. There was also a fascinating First World War exhibition complete with trenches which gave a very different yet equally moving view of life from the German perspective. A really pretty part of town most tourists seem to miss. Great cafe next door in the courtyard out front that serves the most amazing ice cream drinks at very reasonable prices.

This museum is in the old Abbey Cross monastery and includes the University Church. Entrance is free. There is a good exhibition of sacred are with some fine carved statues and altar pieces. The Dutch paintings are fine and there is a toy museum. Our favourite bit was the light airy gallery of Modern Art some of which was banned as degenerate art. Sadly the film about this doesn't have an English translation. There is a bronze head in the museum by Böhmer which Reminded me of to the one in the Hunterian in Glasgow Eastre by Fergusson.

Entry into this cultural history museum is free but more than that, it is a pleasant way to spend some time. Located in the Cloister of the Holy Cross, it was a former convent. Beautiful architecture and well laid out it contains paintings, drawings, sculpture and coins, among other things. Worth a visit.

A visit to Rostock would not be complete without visiting this museum. Everything you need to know about the area from the sacred, to the contemporary. No better way to spend a leisurely few hours.

Quite a good range of local history. The most interesting parts for me were the coin exhibit and the group of works that had been 'Entartite Kunst', the art outlawed by the Nazis, which then was mostly also unacceptable to the East Germans. There was a good short video of the collection and the man who handled it.
