Günter Grass is known for his novels, for which he received the Nobel prize for literature. However he has made an incredible amount of drawings, etchings, water-colours, etc. In this museum one can see a selection of his works. Well worth a visit! Highly recommended.

Really interesting -but you do need to be able to read German. Grass's visual art and sculpture was a bit of a revelation. I loved the exhibition about Grass's novel 'Crab Walk' and its basis in fact.
