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... More

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... More

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.
