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.
