Museum of Valrafa Richarz

In 1861, thanks to Johann, Henry Richarce was founded by the Museum of Valrafa Richarz. The building was built on the money of the entrepreneur and gathered a lot of handwritten documents, ancient books and a collection of cloths in his collection.

The museum occupies a huge area equal to 3.5 thousand square meters. The exposition presents exhibits that lead their history since the Middle Ages. A special place in this collection is a meeting of the work of masters of painting of the Middle Ages, which was collected with great difficulty.

During the periods of church persecution, the great miracle was able to protect the paintings of altars from a variety of temples, which here found their worthy place. The theme of the Middle Ages is extensively represented on the second floor.
