The Prussian Museum Wesel (official name: Prussia Museum North Rhine-Westphalia, location Wesel) is a museum opened in 1998 on the Rhine-Prussian history in Wesel. There is a second location of the museum in Minden about the Westphalian-Prussian history, the Prussian Museum Minden. Both museums together make up the Prussian Museum of North Rhine-Westphalia.The premises of the museum are located in the citadel of Wesel, more precisely in the former "grain magazine" (cereal depot) of the citadel, which was built around 1835. The citadel is one of the few monuments of Prussia, which are still present in Wesel at least partially today. In the basement, the original barrel vault has been preserved, the two above-ground storeys have been converted into a total of 2,000 m² exhibition rooms. At the entrance on the north side there are further exhibition rooms, foyer, museum shop, restaurant and auditorium in the 600 m² glass annex connected to the main wall of the citadel. The adjoining buildings of today's Zitadelle cultural center also house the Schillkasematte section of the Municipal Museum, as well as the city archives with its restoration workshop and the municipal music and art school.
