Lübeck Travel Tip:
Museum of Nature and Environment
Lübeck Natural History Museum
The Museum of Ethnology, part of the Museum of Art and Cultural History, has been located in the 16th century armoury next to Lübeck Cathedral since 1984. Its 30,000+ exhibits, gathered from every corner of the globe, range from religious objects and artworks to simple everyday items. The museum chronicles the past and present lives of people from outside Europe – with a focus on the Near and Middle East, East Asia, Africa, Central and South America and the South Pacific. A highlight of the collection is the Lübeck Apothecary Mummy, a relic from ancient Egypt. The opulence of its amulet jewellery, which is still present under the bandages, is unparalleled in a museum of this kind.
Hours: Tuesday - Friday 9am - 5pm, Saturdays and Sunday 10am - 5pm.
Admission: Adults 5 €, Concessions 2 €, Children under 6 years free.
