On the trail of the steppe mammoth

The Spengler Museum is the regional museum for Sangerhausen and the surrounding area.
Geology, natural history, egg times, prehistory and early history, old­mining and the history of the town of Sangerhausen - these are the major themes of the museum. They are presented in a multifaceted way with historical, original and valuable exhibits as well as texts and pictures.
The attraction of the museum is the skeleton of the steppe mammoth. It was excavated between 1930 and 1933 by the Sangerhausen master carpenter and local historian Gustav Adolf Spengler in a gravel pit in Edersleben.
Other attractions in the exhibition are lifelike dioramas of native animals and plants and the large, detailed model of the town, which shows Sangerhausen around 1750, still completely surrounded by the old town wall.
The Einar Schleef Centre presents the work of the theatre director, writer, painter, graphic artist and photographer Einar Schleef, who was born in Sangerhausen.
Varying special exhibitions complement and deepen the museum themes.
