Karrasburg Museum Coswig - small, but in a place steeped in history, rich in information about the city and region, full of ideas and suitable for visitors of all ages. In 1996 the museum reopened in the mansion known as "Karrasburg". The house received its name from a moated castle that stood on this site in the 15th century and was inhabited by the knights of the Karrasse. Since then, the small museum has shown things worth knowing about the city and region, whether the first Saxon automobile, one of the most beautiful surviving Saxon village churches or things worth knowing about the Elbe can be discovered here on site. Four temporary exhibitions on a wide variety of topics are also presented every year. In all exhibitions, the Karrasburg draws in both young and old visitors alike. In addition to interesting exhibits, there are often stations for discovery, research, puzzles, games and lingering.
