Bismarck-Museum Jan 22, 2017
The Bismarck-Museum is run by the Bismarck-Foundation (Otto-von-Bismarck-Stiftung) which has its seat in the former Friedrichsruh train station building, just a short walk away. Contrary to the exhibition in the foundation building, this exhibition focuses on original items of Bismarck's life and although there is explanatory text it is not as rich and extensive as in the other exhibition. Among the highlights is the only surviving (of three) copies of Anton von Werner's “Proclamation of Wilhelm I:”, the famous painting which shows the foundation of the German Empire. Other exhibits include Bismarck's famous uniform, his honours and medals received and several paintings showing contemporary monarchs such as Queen Victoria or the Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph. Probably the most interesting picture is the one of Wilhelm II. which Bismarck received from the German Emperor for his retirement. I don't think that Bismarck appreciated the painting from the man who forced him out of office very much.

The entry fee is 4 EUR (as of 2012), 3 EUR for concessions. If you want to visit the chapel with the Bismarck-Mausoleum, you have to buy the tickets for it here as well (2 EUR) as there is no working ticket office at the chapel. Some basic Bismarck info can be found on my Friedrichsruh intro page.
