The chalk museum is a small but interesting museum at the place of an old chalk quarry. You can learn about all the different types of chalk, how they are produced, and for what it is used. The healing chalk for example is used to treat rheumatic troubles and osteoporosis, and other diseases. But the museum is not only about chalk, you also get some information about geology and there are exhibitions about different types of stones.
Outside you can have a look at the chalk quarry and some of the equipment that was used. There also is a path up to the highest cliff which they call "little Königsstuhl", after it's big brother in the Jasmund National Park.

Open daily from 10:00 to 17:00 Easter to October; open daily except Monday 10:00 to 16:00 November to Easter.
Admission: 3 ? adults, 1,50 ? children/ students.

Address: Gummanz 3a, 18551 Sagard
Directions: In the north-east, in Sagard-Gummanz, about 12 km from Sassnitz. There's a car park opposite of the Jasmund Therme from where it's a 10-minute-walk.
