Worms Museum in the Andreasstift

Worms Museum is housed in one of the city’s most beautiful buildings – the former St. Andreasstift, a late-Romanesque complex with a picturesque inner courtyard. 

The permanent exhibition presents numerous Bronze Age and Neolithic archaeological finds from Worms.

No less impressive is the museum’s Roman section and the finds from the time of the Franks, who settled in Worms around 500 AD. 

The Luther Room commemorates Martin Luther’s appearance before the Diet of Worms in 1521. 

There is also information about the leather industry, which has played an important role in Worms since the middle of the 19th century. 

The impressive city model is also worth seeing. It shows what the town looked like before it was destroyed in 1689. 

Historic films about Worms in the 1920s to 1950s give a lively impression of developments in the city’s more recent history.

Did you know?

  1. The present museum building (the former “Andreasstift” and St. Andrew’s Church) dates back to the 11 th century. It is part of the rich Romanesque architectural heritage of the city.
  2. The “Andreasstift” (a collegiate church) was founded in the year 1000 and secularized in 1802. Before it became a museum, it was used as a store for fruit and by the city’s fire service.
  3. The core of the museum’s exhibits consists of rich archeological finds donated by the local history association (the “Altertumsverein”). They include one of the largest collections of Roman glassware in Germany.
  4. The ancient walls of the building form a perfect setting for exploring the history of the City of Worms. Admission to the cloister with its inner courtyard is free, and there is an admission charge for the collection in the museum.
  5. Another way to experience the atmosphere of this rather special environment is by attending one of the large number of events. Find out about current and upcoming events here.
  6. A short walk from the cathedral (main entrance) past the youth hostel and St. Magnus’ Church takes you to the idyllic Weckerling Square (Weckerlingplatz). You will find the museum here, adjoining the medieval city wall at St. Andrew’s Gate and the ring round the city that was once a moat.
