“This is not about the museum but the Dom”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

The Dom of Trier is one of the oldest religious buildings of western Christiandom. Originally built in early Romanesque style before 900, later more than doubled in size, adding Gothic and Baroque elements. The inside is very much Baroque - which, for me, detracts from the original magnificence. Nevertheless, it is a World Heritage site, justly. There are many fine and tasteful modern additions of small details: doors, scupltures, etc. Walk around attentively, and listen to or read the notes. The organ is also worth noticing.

“We liked it”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

One has to like sculptures an statues and scalemodels, then this museum is great. It is large and wide (and cool when outside very warm) so great to visit with a group, but if one intends to have a close look at all on display one needs quite some time. Th mosaic part is huge and great, sculptures are not tucked away in a corner but proudly presented, only minor part is the strong reflection of the spots in the glass case (a bit less luminated would be great). We recommend to visit this museum.

“A museum for the intellectuals...”
Reviewed 13 November 2011

... which means that it is pretty eclectic in content, and you'll either get the connections between items or not. If you want general history go to the Rheinisches museum instead, this one is really really focused on the connection between "Art" and "the Church", and there are some glorious modern artworks - particularly Newton's Cage by van Der Vlugt and Pieta by Philipp that are breathtakingly lovely. Most people go here to look at the reconstruction of the Constantine painted ceiling from pre 300AD, but walk around the rest too. There's one display with all the church seals of the archbishops going back to 10th century - just think of the history represented in those cabinets.
Would strongly recommend those intellectuals visiting buy the guide "appreciating insight" available in several languages. It makes you think...and for 5Euros is a bargain.
