  • History of Mann family. Nice to learn about their past...
  • The original facade of the house is exactly what you can think about the Buddenbrook's places. The little museum inside is very nice.
  • A miniature fairytale forest with tableaux recreating scenes from all the folktales. Free!
  • We dropped to Lubek just to visit this exhibition with such high expectations. I really like Thomas Mann as well as the novel Buddenbrooks. So I was really disappointed with such a small collection and unfriendly staff. Just a few information in English. Seemed to be an unwelcome guest.
  • Highly interesting and well made Museum about the history of the Mann Family!
