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 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.
