Museum Seafarers’ Home

What does the sailor when he is in love? Handicrafting presents.

The Museum Seafarers’ Home is situated directly on Lake Sellin. The building presents itself with a thatched roof in the traditional style. It was erected where Christian Richert, in 1751 took over the old cottage of carpenter Grahl for just 30 Reichstaler and also married his daughter. In a carefully designed show the museums presents everyday tools of fishermen and boatbuilders, as well as ancient navigation instruments, ship models, paintings, furniture and some seafarers’ souvenirs from far away countries. Amongst those there is a large collection of English ceramics printed with imagery from the nineteenth century. Who looks for extra information, may follow a guided tour through the exhibition on a touch screen. Under the rooftop there is the Rügen fossil exhibition “Fossilized Life – Fossils from the Isle of Rügen“ on show.
