The Museum

The House of Castle History, a small and modest museum, occupies the Hall of Knights on the first floor of the Ruprecht Building.  The facility consists of several small rooms that are used to display interesting artifacts representing the Castle's history.  One of the rooms (the Modellsaal)contains large relief models of the Castle past and present.

There is little in the museum that demands your attention, but it is a nice introduction to the Castle and allows you to examine several interesting pieces close-up.  Our  images will show captions if you pause you mouse over them.
