Beautiful Presentation
gru 2016 • Pary
This museum, housed in a rather forbidding looking building, is surprisingly light and airy inside, and has some choice items on display.

The giant, framed bobbin lace was astoundingly detailed. Amazing it had survived in that condition all those years. I've tried my hand at filet crochet and can only marvel at the singlemindedness it took to create and assemble that masterwork.

There are two gorgeous silver statues that had large rock crystal reliquaries on their chest.

The exhibition of bishops capes and mitres from the 15th century to current times was phenomenal. Only because they were treasured religious objects in their own right have they survived so long. You really have to look for the door to this exhibit, byw, because it is designed to keep damaging light out.

The exhibition of caskets and tiny altar boxes downstairs was simply amazing as well. I'm afraid I tend to think of someone in the 11th century practically running around in animal skins, but to then come face up against such craftsmanship and delicacy is breathtaking- and disconcerting!

Finally a highlight for me was the exhibit on calligraphy. Materials and a terrific video demonstrate the techniques used to create illuminated manuscripts. I could have watched that all day.

Be sure to look for peacocks throughout the museum. The peacock is the emblem of the patron saint of Paderborn, Liborius.

One short warning. All displays, etc are in german. I tried to use the Google translate app on an exhibition card, and upset a guard who thought I was photographing priceless treasures. Hopefully after demonstrating the app, they'll either loosen up- or provide some translations. I would still recommend going. Even with the language barrier, the beautiful presentation of these spectacular treasures made it worth it.

Beautiful artefacts, no English translation.

The museum is packed with beautiful artefacts and is presented well. I speak a little German and could make my way round but there are no leaflets at the entrance or translations next to the exhibited pieces. So if you don't speak a word of German, this may be a problem. Museums around the world now accommodate for various nationalities and at least have a hand out to explain the pieces but not in this museum. However, just to see the history of the catholic church and the pieces from the Archbishop of Paderborn is worth a look.
