The Museum is housed in the former Royal Castle of Poznan, which was erected in 1249, initially to serve as a residential tower of the Poznan Prince Przemysl I.
The Museum displays furniture, decorative fabrics, valuable silver, china, faience, and tin vessels as well as a variety of decorations once found in castles, palaces or shrines, old clocks and parade weaponry. While most of the items come from Europe, some have been brought in from as far as China and Japan.
