Bike Touring Highlight
The museum is dedicated to the life and research of Heinrich Schliemann. The archaeologist was particularly known for his research on Troy. The museum is located in his former parents' house, which is an 18th century rectory.
The museum is a nice place to take a break as there is also a café on the premises with snacks. In summer you can sit outside very nicely.

The museum collects and preserves archaeological finds, written and pictorial documents, memorabilia and books on the life and work of Schliemann and his legacy in Mecklenburg, and shows them in the permanent exhibition on the ground floor of the originally preserved rectory. Changing special exhibitions take place in the attic. In addition to a small memorial in Schliemann's hometown of Neubukow, the Ankershagen museum is the only Schliemann museum in the world and a center of international Schliemann research.
