In the 13th century, the bishops of Havelberg decided to extend Wittstock Castle to make it their residence. When the last Catholic bishop died at the castle in 1548, the castle and its possessions subsequently fell to the Elector of Brandenburg. The Thirty Years' War caused structural damage, which ultimately led to the complete dilapidation of the castle complex.

Today, the Kreismuseen Alte Bischofsburg regional museums with the Museum des Dreissigjährigen Krieges (Thirty Year's War Museum) and the Ostprignitz Museum dedicated to regional history and the special exhibition area await visitors to the half-timbered building.

The massive tower in the former castle has housed the Museum des Dreissigjährigen Krieges (Museum of the Thirty Years’ War) since 1998. There, historical objects, pictures and documents provide an exciting insight into the everyday life of people in times of war. Visitors are given a small introduction where they find out about the causes of the war, the everyday life of ordinary people, including those in the army, the weapons and their use in battles and skirmishes until after six stages they finally arrive at the long-awaited peace in 1648.

The former Amtshaus administration building houses the Ostprignitz Museum, which addresses important aspects of regional history.

The variety of special exhibitions in the half-timbered building is diverse and ranges from art exhibitions to exhibitions based on cultural and regional history.
