It cost just 6 Euro's to visit this fascinating exhibition based in a museum close to the Neumarkt U-Bahn/tram stop. The stained glass and the various carving were superb. The quality was unexpectedly brilliant. Although an atheist some of it was very moving.

The collection is small but good. I would not say it warrants a visit for this collection alone, but since it is in the same building as the very interesting Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum and the ticket is good for both museums, it is worth a quick visit...More
