St. Anne's Museum (German: St.-Annen-Museum) is a museum and art exhibition hall located near St. Giles Church and next to the synagogue in the south-east of the city of Lübeck, Germany.

The main building was previously an Augustinian nunnery, St. Anne's Priory (German: Sankt-Annen-Kloster), built 1502–1515 in late Brick Gothic style. Since 1915 it has housed one of Lübeck's museums of art and cultural history containing Germany's largest collection of medieval sculpture and altar-pieces, including the famous altars by Hans Memling (formerly at Lübeck Cathedral), Bernt Notke, Hermen Rode, Jacob van Utrecht and Benedikt Dreyer. These are exhibited on the building's first floor.

On the building's second floor is exhibited a large collection of home decor items and interiors of different periods, showing how the area's citizens lived from medieval times up to the 1800s.

A modern addition houses special exhibits.

The museum is part of the Lübeck World Heritage site.
