At Museum am Dom, explore a collection of art and artifacts housed in an ancient Romanesque cathedral. The structure dates back to the fourth century, when World Heritage-listed Trier was considered the "Rome of the North." The museum includes religious artifacts such as funeral monuments, icons, and folk art, as well as modern pieces like "Newton's Cage" by Leendert van Der Vlugt. Look up to see the real highlight: a fourth-century painted ceiling depicting Emperor Constantine's mother, Helena, among others. It took ten years to reconstruct the work from thousands of fragments. Plan to visit Museum am Dom during your Trier vacation using our convenient Trier travel planner.

  • Great exhibits, well presented. The reconstructed hanging ceiling mosaic is a gem. Watch the film about this (only in German ). Take an audio guide, available in English if you need it.

  • Such a beautiful cathedral lined with intricate art and stained glass. I am very glad I got to see this and recommend anyone in Trier to come and take tour around. Free to visit but there are donation boxes.
  • Pictures aren't allowed but staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Beautiful museum.
