The Gustav-Lübcke-Museum is based on two historical initiatives: the first was the museum association founded in 1886 and the second, the foundation set up by Gustav Lübcke in 1917.

In 1993 the collections were moved and accommodated in a new, architecturally attractive building near to the station.

The museum highlights five areas: urban history, handicrafts, modern art, prehistory and early history and Egyptian art. The section covering urban and regional history contains many historic artefacts that are significant for the history of Prussia.

The Gustav-Lübcke-Museum is barrier-free

All exhibition rooms and visitor rooms in the museum are without barriers and are accessible via ramps and lifts for wheelchair users and the physically handicapped. Wheelchairs and prams can also be borrowed for free at the ticket counter. Multimedia guides offered at the ticket counter for all visitors to the museum particularly help the visually impaired when visiting the museum. We would be glad to help in facilitating your museum visit. Please contact us in advance if possible so that we can provide you with ideal support.
Parking space for physically handicapped people (wheelchair parking)

A parking space for the physically handicapped is located in Ferdinand-Poggel-Straße directly adjacent to the museum building. You can access the entrance to the museum without barriers by using the external ramp to the museum building (the side of the museum in Ferdinand-Poggel-Straße). To arrive by car, take Hohe Straße in a westerly direction (one-way road), then turn right into Ferdinand-Poggel-Straße (cul-de-sac).
