Klopstockhaus Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock Blick in die Ausstellung Messias

The museum is located in the house where the poet Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock (1724 - 1803) was born. It is a half-timbered building from the 16th century.

Klopstock, who became the father of our Classical German literature because of his fruitful work, was well-known beyond the German frontier. Further permanent exhibitions in the Klopstock-Museum inform about the life and work of Dorothea Christiana Erxleben, one of the first German doctors with a doctorate, about Johann Christoph Friedrich GutsMuths - an important pedagogue of the 18th century who deserves well of the introduction of Physical Education. Another exhibition is devoted to Carl Ritter, well-known because he advanced arguments in support of geography as a science.

Moreover the life and work of the painter Wilhelm Steuerwaldt from Quedlinburg is presented.
