Nice displays and detailed audio tour for only 5euros. Nice to visit and read or listen to the history of the schloss. Nice building from the outside as well.

The museum was nice, the whole tour of the Duke and Duchess' royal areas can be understood in English with a free audioguide. Beautiful woodwork and some interesting history. The glass part of the museum is all in German though.

A great place to learn about the life of dukes and dutchesses. Fortunately they have English audio tour guides, otherwise I think we would have been lost! A very inexpensive and time efficient stop that's well worth taking in.

Visit to the Schless so worthwhile. If you go, make sure you get the headset in your language of choice. It really clarifies what went on in each room, the furniture, and other appointments in the castle. It is well preserved and interesting.

After we finished our tour at Jägermeister (very much worth a visit) we visited the very nice town of Wolfenbuttel and also went to the Schloss Museum. Nice but not spectacular.

Visits are accompanied by a guide (ours spoke quite good English). This baroque schloss is a really interesting place to visit, especially in view of the English connection (through the Hanoverian royal family). Highly recommended.
