An entire world full of history
The real world of Lübeck's museums is the historic old town of Lübeck, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, all the houses of the museum association are located in close proximity to each other.
In January 2006, on the initiative of the former senator for culture, the Museum Association was founded, uniting Lübeck's museums under one roof in a cultural foundation: Kunsthalle St. Annen and St. Annen Museum, Museum Behnhaus Drägerhaus, Museum of Nature and Environment, Industrial Museum History Workshop Herrenwyk, Museum Holstentor, Buddenbrookhaus and Günter Grass House, St. Catherine's Church as well as the Burgkloster with Museum of Archaeology and the Museum of Ethnology.
Since the history of the city in the former "capital" of the Hanseatic League is also European history, the world of the Hanseatic League can be experienced in the European Hanseatic Museum, which also includes the Burgkloster.
Lübeck's museum island can be explored completely by foot due to the short distances, and thanks to the thematic diversity, a whole new world can be discovered.
