Housed in a newly refurbished building by J.G. Quistorp built from 1793-1795, the Pommersches Landesmuseum was finally fully opened to the public in 2005. It now houses an art gallery with paintings from the 18th century until the 20th century, among them some by famous painters such as Max Liebermann or local hero Caspar David Friedrich.

The gallery is also playground for the university's art and art history students, which means there is always some sort of exhibition...

The second part of the museum consists of the historical collection, telling the story of both the town and the whole area from the beginning on. It also houses some of the unversity's treasures that had not been showed in a permanent exhibition before, such as the Croy-tapestry and a Gutenberg-Bible.

Address: Follow the signs...
Directions: in the town centre, just off the market place
