Cathedral and Diocesan Museum

Important artistic treasures from over 1,000 years of history of the Mainz archdiocese are shown here in a historical setting.

The Cathedral and Diocesan Museum is housed in the rooms around Mainz Cathedral's late-Gothic cloister. World-famous early-Gothic figurines, such as those of 'the Blessed' and 'the Damned' taken from the former western rood screen, can be seen in the vaulted halls, which date from the time of the Swabian dynasty in the Middle Ages. Exquisite Ottonian manuscript illuminations, as well as vividly coloured late-Gothic tapestries, are among the Cathedral Museum's best-known treasures.

Opening times:

Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm, Saturday & Sunday 11am-6pm
