A nice museum. Not a reliquary in the full sense of the word, though some of the exhibits could find their place in reliquaries. For example, ancient crucifixes and icons. Interesting fragments of early altars, bishops ' tombstones and epitaphs, sculptures of Madonna and of Christ, part of the main entrance hall of Empress Helena, including portraits of Helen herself...

Small museum with unusual late Roman ceiling painting painstakingly restored, Fascinating puzzle of original fragments completed to give the full idea.

We didn't get a chance to see much of the regular museum since we spent so much time in the Nero Exhibit (which had been divided into 3 separate museums). This museum concentrated on Nero and the Christians. The audio guide was excellent as the exhibit carried us through a chronology of Nero's life with possible explanations as to why... More

When I visited, the museum was virtually taken over by the Nero exhibition. This was interesting, but most of the rest of the actual museum was out of bounds. However, I did get to see the Constantine ceiling paintings which was the main reason for going, so not all bad news!! Large gift shop, but again taken over by Nero,... More

We've been there during a very rainy day as last part of the three exhibitions concerning the roman emperor Nero. The title was a bit misleading: Nero and the prosecution of the christians. This was only a very small part of the whole story, Nero was only a marginal piece in that history. Nevertheless: very nice representation of a lot... More

When I visit a Cathedral museum I expect to find beautiful liturgical vestments and silverware. This museum had one or two chalices but nothing else. The rest of the stuff was Roman ruins and paintings. There was also a lot of modern art. Avoid it if you are looking for interesting old liturgical items - you'll be disappointed.

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... More
