The castle contains an exquisite collection of arts and crafts, including precious porcelain, faïence, glasses and select furniture. The historical rooms of Belvedere Castle with the festive hall, the silver salon and the side pavilions, have been restored during the last few years at great expense. An exhibit on hunting in the Weimar countryside can be visited in the east pavilion, and an exhibit on the culture of gardens during the lifetime of Duke Ernst August, who commissioned the Belvedere Palace, is on diplay in the west pavilion.
