Stunning art works and carvings from the Munster and a few others are displayed very well in this excellent museum.

Check which day it is closed before you go .... unlike us!

“Beautiful medieval collection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

This museum houses some very fine paintings by German artistis such as Grünewald, Hans Baldung Grien and Lucas Cranach. Works date from the early middle ages (1100) until today. Most impressive are the larger-than-life statues of the prophets from the cathedral, displayed in the museum's main hall. If you like wooden structures the opportunity to see the roof structure on the top floor is a must-see. Definately worth a visit!

“Lovely Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

The tickets at this museum cover all 5 of the municipal museums. There is currently an exhibition on sketches by pencil and pen on one floor but the main exhibits are pieces from the Cathedral including some of the gargoyles and outside statues. We had a recital on the magnificent organ during our visit.

“Interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
