Though not the biggest of museums, it holds enough pieces and historic information to be worth a visit. The building has been beautifully restored/refurbished over the last couple of years, and it's been wellworth it. Added bonus: it's air conditioned ;-)

Excellent transformation of the old monastary chapel into a modern museum. Lots of original stained glass windows and statues from the Cathedral - Take a day pass for 3 museums (substantial reduction)

We were fortunate to visit during an exhibition of 100 of Rembrandt's etchings. The explanations of each work in its context were superb. The main part of the Augustiner museum was very impressive, from the original Munster statues housed here to protect them, to medieval...More

We enjoyed about an hour or two reading about the history of the cathedral and its architectural integrity..... or lack there of! The museum is also filled with beautiful time pieces and measurement tools from hundreds of years ago. Simply fascinating! We were also able...More

We visited during an exhibition of Freiburg under the Nazi regime and it was well worth a visit. It was both informative and not at all didactic.

This is an amazing museum.The works are so well displayed and it blew us away.One of the best small musuems we have ever been to.A must-see, if, like us, you enjoy medieval art.

This statue is of Christ on a donkey and was mounted on a cart to be used in a Palm Sunday celebration. It is quite old, and quite striking. There is a picture of it that can be found by searching for Augustinermuseum... More
