Between the area of the Mecklenburger Seenplatte (lake district) and the romantic scenery of the Nossentin-Schwinzer heathland lies the village of Alt Schwerin.
The well-preserved knightly properties provide an ideal location for the AGRONEUM. Mansion and park, farm buildings, avenues and houses of farm workers are in good condition.
A relic of this development is the central exhibition which displays 5.000 years of agricultural history of Mecklenburg. It was organised with great effort in 1988 and kept as testimony to GDR history. This "self-expression" provides a "museum within the museum" to the visitor.
The AGRONEUM Alt Schwerin is a special open-air museum: it was not built on greenfield, but it developed amidst authentic historical substance. The visitor will find an extensive collection of technology, everyday objects, a wilhelminian village school and farmer habitations from the years 1910, 1942 and the 1960s.
You can walk around and discover the whole village – beginning with the church, based in the 13th century, the manor, the accommodation of the manciple, large storehouses and barns from the 19th century up to the house of one member of LPG (agricultural production cooperative of GDR) from the 1970s. The conceptual integration of these "trend objects" has found great acceptance amongst the visitors. The large area with a smithy, a wheelwright, Dutch windmill, reciprocating saws, rope yard and a light railway round off the museum collection.
The AGRONEUM provides a range of thematic activities and events, such as Easter sundries for young and old, court festivals, International steam engine meetings, classic car and tractor meetings, harvest festivals, pumpkin festivals, slaughter festival and flea markets.
