It cost just 6 Euro's to visit this fascinating exhibition based in a museum close to the Neumarkt U-Bahn/tram stop. The stained glass and the various carving were superb. The quality was unexpectedly brilliant. Although an atheist some of it was very moving.

This museum is a real gem - don't be confused by the entrance, which is ultra modern, as once you get into the museum you quickly find your way into the medieval church next door. The collection is beautifully arranged so that there is a...More

Well worth a visit. Thought provoking, eye opening and just a feel good cultural experience. This culture has so much to learn, experience and remember. It truly reflect on some of our culture's past.

I can't imagine why anyone would rate this as Poor, although apparently someone did.. It is an outstanding collection of medieval art. Most of it is religious art, but even atheists will enjoy looking at exquisite carving, endearing statues of the holy family and saints,...More

This museum has a very nice collection of religious medieval items. With sculptures and items used in religious services. Three things made this place stand out for me: 1) The frescoes in the church; 2) The antiquity of some items. There were books from the...More

The collection is small but good. I would not say it warrants a visit for this collection alone, but since it is in the same building as the very interesting Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum and the ticket is good for both museums, it is worth a quick visit...More
