The exhibition in the west cloisters of the Convent of the Holy Cross displays a selection of eating and drinking utensils from Rostock. They are part of one of the largest archaeological collections in Mecklenburg-Western-Pomerania. From the foundation of the Museum of Art and Antiquity until 1993, the museum collected archaeological objects and was for many years  in charge of city archaeology in Rostock.
In the present exhibition of the Rostock Cultural History Museum a small part of its extensive archaeology collection is on display. The focus is on objects excavated in the heart of the city in the last 100 years.
Especially outstanding items include ampoules from the 17th century and bronze tripod cooking pots from the 15th century found in Rostock.
