Come and discover seventeen centuries of art and history: Roman relics, the famous Ottonian bronze portal of Augsburg Cathedral, precious medieval textiles, the extraordinary funerary arms of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, Gothic and Baroque church treasures from Augsburg and the surrounding region, and modern-day works of art. Embark on a journey through time and explore the bishopric of Saint Ulrich.
The museum located on the north side of Augsburg Cathedral is home to a modern permanent exhibition and temporary special exhibitions. The edifice is a marvel in and of itself, harmoniously combining a modern complex with mid-twentieth-century architecture and a Romanesque chapter house as well as the late Gothic cloister and Ulrich's Chapel.
The Diocesan Museum is also accessible from the cathedral via the cloister.
