Large parts of the regional museum for the Eastern Prignitz were altered after its removal to reconstructed Amtshaus (office building). It is devoted to the history of the Prignitz down to the most recent past (the German Democratic Republic), the history of the city of Wittstock as well as the folklore, urban and rural life, craft and trade in the region.
The pedagogic part of the museum is suited for individual and group visits alike. It is especially recommended for special topic units at schools. Under the title “History foot - history you can touch” visitors are invited to “do it themselves”, no matter whether they try doing contemporary handiwork or fix foods and drinks.
