Where once blocks of ice cooled perishable goods, are now permanent and temporary exhibitions about the castle history or the development of the surrounding landscape.
This is thanks to the dedication of the Heimatverein der Herrlichkeit Diersfordt e.V. The members use the former ice cellar of the castle near Wesel as a museum and exhibition room.
The building restored under monument protection is a rare example of the existence of an ice cellar in a castle from the baroque times. Since 2004, the presentation has not just been dedicated to the history of the castle and the former usage of the building as an ice cellar. Exhibits from an excavated site of the early Iron Age on the top floor and documents the animals and plants of this region. A rich program of events with musical performances, readings, lectures and museum activities are a fixed component of the museum work.
