The 90-year-old Museum in the Stone Gate (Steintor in German) is the oldest town history museum between Greifswald and Szczecin.

The Stone Gate is the only surviving gate from the fortifications of Anklam and the tallest brick Gothic town gate in Pomerania. It is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful gates in northern Germany.

The museum is located in one of the most beautiful clinker gates in all of northern Germany. It is 32 meters high and the only part of the medieval fortress that is still preserved. It was built at around 1250 and added-on at around 1450. In 1986 it was reconstructed and hosts a museum since 1989. Some regional history and the Anklam treasure – the most important treasure finds of the Thirty Years’ War - among others thing are shown in the museum. It is the oldest museum of local history in Western Pomerania and was opened in 1927. To visit the archives and library pre-announcements are necessary.
