A legend describes the creation of Lenzburg Castle, one of the most important hilltop castles in Switzerland. The oldest parts of the castle date back to the 11th century, the era of the Count of Lenzburg. Subsequently, several aristocratic families owned the castle in turn. During the Bernese rule, the castle served as the residence of the governors and eventually fell into private hands.

In 1956 Canton Aargau bought the castle complex. Today several exhibitions of the Aargau Museum are housed in the castle: the residential museum, the weapons exhibition, sacral works of art from Aargau, objects related to culinary culture, Aargau silver and a children's museum in the attic of the governor's residence. A knights hall and castle courtyard are available for staging events.
