Dommuseum Frankfurt shows ecclesiastical treasury art, a rich collection of Medieval and Baroque Eucharistic vestments and important exhibits relating to Frankfurt’s Imperial cathedral.
The latter range from early Medieval archaeological finds to evidence of its historicistic redesign in the early 19th century. One of the most important exhibits in Dommuseum is a find unearthed in 1991 at excavations in the cathedral itself: The grave of two children who were buried here around 700 CE. The many funerary objects include the most delicate of gold jewelry, glass and clay vessels, as well as small toys, everyday objects and amulets.
The treasures from the St. Leonhard and Liebfrauenkirche churches are presented in the Sakristeum, the museum’s newly opened annex located in the Haus am Dom across the square.
