This permanent exhibition documents the importance of the Katholisches Dompfarramt St. Bartholomäus as the city's first parish church and as a place where German kings and emperors were crowned and elected. The intention is for visitors to gain an understanding of the cathedral's background and history. Dom-Museum opened in 1987 and the main attraction is without doubt the collection of priceless religious treasures and other gold artifacts, although much of the collection has gone missing over the centuries. Also on show are valuable discoveries from a grave dating back to the late Merovingian period and mass robes from the 14-20th Century. Visitors can also find information on the history of the construction of the cathedral during the Middle Ages and its changing fate in the 19th Century. Check website for more details.
