Worth a visit to understand the Dom!
Oct 2019
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.

A Trier Treasure!
Sep 2019
Historically fascinating.... especially for any who appreciate religious historical art and artifacts. There are truly amazing unearthed finds from the Cathedral, which enabled the Christian worship of centuries of the faithful. Some modern pieces as well,

Trier Museum am Dom
Sep 2018
Very nice museum; friendly & helpful staff; beautiful pieces, some very old. I wish they had the dates of all of the pieces on display, instead of on the captions of only a few. But, who knows, they may not know the dates of some of the artwork themselves. You must check your backpacks before you go into the museum. We skipped the section on workers, and concentrated on the religious portion. Make it a point to see the mosaic from St. Helena's palace they found in rubble after WW2 bombings, and pieced back together.

This museum offers some of the most interesting religious historical artifacts I have seen during my travels. It is definitely worth a visit for anyone travelling through Trier!

Very impressive art exhibition until October as part of Marx 200
Jul 2018 • Solo
The Museum is good and has some really interesting Roman frescoes, but what really impressed me was the current art exhibition, in association with the 200th anniversary of Marx's birth in Trier. The exhibition really exceeded my expectations, it featured art from a number of different artists from around the world addressing the changing nature of work in the 21st century. It was worthwhile spending a couple of Euros on the audioguide, as the explanations were helpful in interpreting this challenging and always fascinating exhibition.

Amazing !!!
Sep 2017 • Couples
The artwork and sculpture in this museum is astonishing. There are no cameras permitted, but there are lockers available. I mention that first because the rest is just fantastic. Religious icons wall fragments and paintings, sculptures, carvings are all so finely displayed in a very open area on three floors.
We were followed around by attendants for the two hours we spent there, which was a pain, but still worth the price of admission for sure. I guess the security is necessary given the size of the museum, but I hate being watched.

Big disappointment
May 2017 • Couples
I really wanted to like this place as I find religious art fascinating, however it ended up being a disappointment.
All the signage and labeling is in German, which is fair enough seeing it is in Germany. However, when trying to use the phone to google translate the signage we were told no photos. Despite my best efforts to explain in German that we were using the phone to translate the signage we were told no. This left us feeling that we were missing out on so much of the information about the pieces on show, which just led to frustration.
The mosaics were impressive, especially considering how they have restored them, and they are displayed in a clever way. Well done for that.
There are beautiful items here, but without understanding the full meaning of them I found the whole experience to be empty. If you are a non-German speaker, I would suggest another activity for your time in Trier.

The Roman frescos are amazing!
Aug 2017 • Solo
Lovely museum. Not too big, but with some really pretty pieces. Late-antique and Medieval finds from around Trier cathedral with as absolute height the ceiling frescos from a Roman villa which once stood at the spot of the cathedral. They are so beautiful and if you think of all the work it was to restore these frescos from the 1000 of pieces they were found in, you will be stunned.
You are not allowed to take pictures inside and the staff sort of follows you around the museum, which can be a little distracting.

It is ok
Jul 2017 • Solo
This is the first place I visited in Trier, although I did not plan to visit it. I did it for two reasons. First, I needed to use toilet. Second, I hoped to know more about the history. Although I was told that not much history was covered, I had to enter for the first reason. A former prison, it was clean and well-maintained. I was not very interested in religion, so that the place did not appeal to me much. I do hope there will be more English signs as well as some coverage of the Dom. After all, this is a Dom museum.

Fantastic roman pantings!

The most important pieces in the museum are the restored ceiling frescoes from the imperial palace. Amazing restoration of the small preserved parts. A really unique images of members of imperial family and other persons. Incredible! Unfortunately it's not permitted to take photos.
