The Museum of the City of Worms is housed in one of the most beautiful buildings in Worms, the former Andreasstift , a late Romanesque collegiate church with a picturesque inner courtyard.
The two new cloister wings on the ground floor present the history of the city, the history of the City Museum of Worms and the city model.
The upper floors contain numerous archaeological finds from Worms from the Bronze Age and Neolithic period. No less impressive is the Roman section of the museum as well as finds from the time of the Franks, who settled in the area of Worms around 500 CE. Luther's historically significant appearance before the Diet of Worms in 1521 is honoured in the museum, as well as the history of the city in the Middle Ages.
The historical cloister and its courtyard with the water feature are also open and even freely accessible. Especially on hot days, this place is a climatic oasis in the middle of the city centre and a unique, beautiful place to rest. The museum thus supports the heat action plan of the city of Worms. Of course, the cloister with its seating can also be visited at other times of the year without paying admission.
