“Interesting”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

Small but with some worthwhile exhibits especially of external figures which had to be removed from their place on the cathedral. Can be covered easily in half an hour.

“Nice local Cathedral History”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

Contains architectural relics from the neighboring cathedral, and some other artwork. All descriptions in German. You do know a gargoyle when you see one, don't you? A combo ticket gets you into several Freiburg museums, a good deal. Nice museums for a city that's not that big.

“Interesting museum ruined by rude and aggressive staff”
Reviewed 8 February 2013 via mobile

This museum provides a unique and close up view of religious sculpture, paintings and stained glass windows. But the astounding rudeness of the staff, in particular the venomous old men who roam the upper floors may leave you wishing you hadn't bothered.

“Colored glass windows and gothic sculptures at your fingertips”
Reviewed 5 February 2013

The former church turned museum for medieval art displays the original colored-glass windows from the Freiburger Münster aswell as sculptures. The visit is a perfect complement to the Münster itself, providing the visitor with historical information and the ability to closely look at the glass windows and sculptures, which are usually way to far up for close examination.
The cafeteria in the cloisters is a nice break.
