The Deutsches Schützenbund (German Museum) from 1861 to the present day is at the centre of the museum. In addition, the (cultural) history of shooting since the Middle Ages is presented, with numerous objects, but also modern technology, such as a shooting range simulator. The original pistols of Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games, lead over to an extensive collection of Olympic torches (Berlin 1936, Munich 1972 and all Summer Games from Seoul 1988 to Beijing 2008).
