The Dom Museum
As if the cathedral that stands over the North German city of Lübeck isn't magnificent enough, there is a really interesting museum next to it.
Situated on Hartengrube, the Lübeck Dom has a peculiar double spire, and is one of the seven churches that provide the city with its unique cityscape.
The museum is situated beside the entrance to the cathedral, in the old custom house. It houses a fine collection of ethnology, and I spent an hour or so here.
Before you wonder what ethnology is, it is simply the study of different ethnicities from around the world. The museum has items from many races and cultures, especially in relation to art and religion. It also displays items that many primitive races used (and still use) in their daily lives.
For me, the most interesting exhibit is the first Egyptian mummy that was brought to Germany.
The museum is closed on Mondays (like almost everything else in the city), and open from 10am until 5pm on every other day. [more ]
