    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.

    In summer the museum is open every day (except Monday) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. In winter it is also closed on Sundays. The opening times are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the week and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. Admission costs 4 euros for adults.

    The museum, founded in 1980, is a memorial and research center for the internationally known archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann. 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. In addition to original letters, the archive also contains 35,000 copies of letters and copies of all 18 travel and excavation diaries.
