These are exhibited on the building's first a museum and art exhibition hall located near St. Giles Church and next to the synagogue in the south-east of the city of Lübeck, Germany. On the building's second floor is exhibited a large collection of home decor items and interiors of different periods, showing how the area's citizens lived from medieval times up to the 1800s. A modern addition houses special exhibits. The museum is part of the Lübeck World Heritage site.
