Ice Age Museum Lütjenburg

The museum is designed primarily as an information centre. It shows how the powerful ice sheets carried Scandinavian rocks many hundreds of kilometres to North Germany and how ice and melting waters left their mark on the countryside. At the same time, the museum offers an interactive experience where there are many things which you are allowed to touch:  a mammoth's molar which was found in the North Sea or a stone full of mussel shells. You can see for yourself how smooth stones become when polished by glaciers, or what bituminous limestone smells like when you scratch it. You can guess the weight of boulders or lift a piece of petrified wood. There are stone jigsaws, a corner for painting, a box of costumes to dress up in and our ice-age cuddly toys.

Opening hours:
October-April: Tue – Sun 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. and May-September: Mon – Sun 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

€ 4.00 adults, € 2.00 children
Groups of 10 people or more receive a discount of € 0.50 per person on the price of entry
