Museum am Dom Trier, Trier

4.0
#3 of 6 in Museums in Trier
Specialty Museum Museum
At Museum am Dom Trier, explore a collection of art and artifacts housed in an ancient Romanesque cathedral. The structure dates back to the fourth century, when World Heritage-listed Trier was considered the "Rome of the North." The museum includes religious artifacts such as funeral monuments, icons, and folk art, as well as modern pieces like "Newton's Cage" by Leendert van Der Vlugt. Look up to see the real highlight: a fourth-century painted ceiling depicting Emperor Constantine's mother, Helena, among others. It took ten years to reconstruct the work from thousands of fragments.

  • Pictures aren't allowed but staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Beautiful museum.
  • I was here on the occasion of the exhibition "NERO and the Christians". Worth watching, perfect presentation, imaginative design, and what is also important in midsummer, pleasantly air-conditioned. In conjunction with a walk to the trier Cathedral - very pleasant.
