Königsberg Museum was the Largest in the Baltic

The first Russian-language study of the Prussia Museum by the well-known Kaliningrad archeologist Vladimir Kulakov has been published.
      The book will be one of the sections of a treatise, which is now being prepared for publication in Germany.
      Vladimir Kulakov has found out that before the end of World War Two the antiquarium was placed in the Royal Castle and totaled more than half a million exhibits. Prussia Museum displayed samples of weapons, prizes, archeological finds, works of fine arts, and works by Konigsberg handicraftsmen.
      Some of the rarities are kept in Berlin and Poland today. Fragments of the museum collection were found in Kaliningrad in the course of archeological excavation of the Royal Castle. These were cannonballs, tableware, plaquettes, busts and bas-reliefs.
