At Köpenick Palace, reopened in May 2004 after basic restoration works, a new museum concept is devised: under the heading "RoomArt", furniture and decorative art from the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo periods are jointly presented.
Over 500 exhibits are on display, selected according to the original function the objects fulfilled within the 16th, 17th and 18th century culture of habitation and representation in the public, private and courtly spheres. The term "RoomArt" embraces all parts of the interior which in the past served as wall and room decorations in bourgeois and courtly dwelling rooms: tapestries, enamel works, panelling, leather hangings, a cabinet with Baroque cupboards from the Kunstkammer, centrepieces, porcelain and silver. After careful restoration, the ceiling paintings and the stucco ceilings created by Graubünden masters - a total of 29 - are also included in the new presentation concept.
One of the highlights of the tour of the palace are four remarkably complete walk-in panellings from the above mentioned periods, among them the richly inlaid Renaissance panelling from Haldenstein Palace in Switzerland and Höllrich Palace, further the silver buffet from Berlin Palace and the recreated so-called "coat of arms hall".
A permanent exhibition of the Kunstgewerbemuseum, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.
