Construction diary: Revised permanent exhibition, new parquet floor

Bautagebuch: √úberarbeitete Dauerausstellung, neuer Parkettboden

The year 2021 is not an anniversary year for the Dom-Museum, but it feels a little like one. After the reopening, the museum awaits its visitors in large parts in a new dress. Thanks to many earmarked donations, the team of the Dom-Museum was able to make great strides in revising the content and appearance of the permanent exhibition during the pandemic-related closure period. These days, the craftsmen are in the museum renewing the decades-old floor coverings on the upper floor; existing wooden floors are being sanded down, needle felt replaced by oak parquet.

With the reopening, the revision of almost all parts of the exhibition will be completed for the time being. Particularly noteworthy is the exhibition section on the history of the cathedral as the starting point for the missionary work in Northern Europe and the time when Bremen became the "Rome of the North". Thanks to the fundamental redesign of the content and appearance of this section, the research results from the highly acclaimed exhibition "Bremen and Scandinavia" (2018) are now part of the permanent exhibition. In addition, for example, a video station on the excavation history and restoration of our magnificent medieval textiles and an audio station have found a place in the museum.
