The exhibition known as "KPM WELT" ("KPM World") is organized by the Royal Porcelain Factory (Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur), the oldest craftsman factory still in existence in Berlin. The exhibition is on display in former factory halls that date back to the 19th century.

With its selection of porcelain and art works, the exhibition provides an overview of the development of the KPM starting with the era of Frederick the Great, who founded the factory in 1763 and commissioned many representative Rococo sets. It then moves on to the biscuit china sculptures of the Schinkel era, the golden decorations characteristic of historicism all the way to the styles unique to Art Nouveau, Art Déco and Neuer Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity).

Visitors can gain insight into the complex process of porcelain manufacturing in the restored ring chamber furnace hall (Ringkammerofenhalle) from 1871. They can also tour the storage area for the KPM's various models and forms and watch craftspeople garnishing and painting the pieces in the workshop. And, finally, the festive Boccherini Hall with its richly decorated table will take visitors back to the time of grand royal ceremonial services.
