Museum am Dom Trier, Trier

(3.4/5 based on 30 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Only has proud history from Roman times is the former capital of Germany, Trier, there's many monuments and buildings. It would fit there well and Margam cite three major museums, the Cathedral Museum, State Museum, municipal museum located next to the Porta nigra and. Pretty fun, both, are concentrated in the old town, so look around.

  • One of the three locations where a Nero exhibition was in late 2016. Beautiful, nicely decorated. Really worth it.

  • 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.
