The Rheinisches Landesmuseum (Rhineland Regional Museum) in Bonn contains a fascinating array of religious treasures, along with many other exhibits on the Rhineland region. Originally founded by a Prussian prince in 1820 to display antiquities, the Rheinisches Landesmuseum reopened in 2003 with an ultra-modern building and a new thematic arrangement. The permanent collections are now arranged into 10 themes. The religion theme, Von den Göttern zu Gott ("From Gods to God"), occupies an entire floor and is full of fascinating works of local religious art from various ages and faiths. continue reading →
