Museum am Dom Trier, Trier
(3.3/5 based on 25+ 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.

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

  • This museum is opposite the dom. central location in the city of Trier. The museum is regularly used for fascinating exhibitions in combination with other historic buildings from the city such as the Rheinisches LandesMuseum with the exhibition "Nero".

  • The Museum has a hard time against the competition of the National Museum, but with the great Roman and Christian exhibits also this museum is a must to understand Roman and Christian culture in Germany.

  • 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.
