After visiting the schloss, the museum was a great disappointment -- just dark Dutch landscapes and portraits, nothing of interest! We never found the Cranach, Rembrandt, and Rubens our Michelin green guide listed -- and it rated it *, the same as the St. Annen...More

We checked out the whole museum including the museum store / cafe. Overall the Museum is offering a descent, but not spectacular collection of artwork of classic (starting about 17th. century) and contemporary periods. Very impressive was the presentation of a recent body of work...More

The museum mostly displays Dutch Golden age art. In fact it has a surfeit of Dutch art on the walls. Not all of the works are of the highest calibre. For every Ruisadel, Claez, Hals, etc. there are a number of works by other artists...More

Very good exhibition of Dutch masters and a small exhibition of Barlach sculptures but 2/3 is currently closed while they move to a new building. Not clear when it will be fully open again.

I went to the museum to specifically see the David Teniers, Breughel and Rubens and Franz von Stuck paintings. Absolutely a must see and would have been better if seen before the castle. Both in a day was exhausting and wonderful.

The museum is a part of few monuments you can visit with a combine ticket. Good quality of art and a modern wing. Put attention to the opening hours ( summer & winter )

The old city has been preserved and renovated over the last twenty years or so and the museum is both fascinating and full of amazing information about the land of my forefathers.

visited the Stolen Art exhibition. Well presented and excellent headphone-translation. The building in itself is interesting architecture.

I didn't expect to find such a good collection outside a city, but the collection includes items owned by the wealthy former rulers of the area, who lived in Schwerin Castle and had some very beautiful paintings, furniture and objects. The special exhibition which was...More
