In the representative rooms of the Commander’s House there is an exhibition outlining the history of the castle and the fortress. It is the ideal starting point for finding out more about the Citadel. All explanatory texts are in German and English.
Models, maps, paintings and photographs, archaeological finds, pewter figure dioramas, weapons, helmets and everyday objects belonging to the soldiers, bring to life the historical events which have taken place in the Citadel. A special part of the exhibition here is devoted to the animal life in the area. Panels with explanations suitable for children make the visit enjoyable for the whole family. A pavilion on the southern curtain wall shows temporary exhibitions organised in co-operation with Spandau’s Youth Art School.
