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.

This museum is really impressive and with very good collection of paintings and other things. Especially I loved the piano. Moreover entry is free and photography costs 2 Euros. It's worth visiting place in Rostock.

The Museum of Cultural History--housed in a 13th-century nunnery--is filled with materials relevant to the Rostock area and the surrounding lands, in general. It was worth a visit during the GDR years and is worth it all the more in its revamped setting.
