Memento mori

Museum Schnütgen

The figure of a dancing Grim Reaper awaits you in the entrance area of the museum. Your tour of the collection leads you to objects related to the theme of transience. The choice collection of late Gothic and Baroque depictions of the „Memento Mori“ theme provides an insight into an eerily beautiful world which has almost ceased to exist, but which shaped people‘s environment and attitude towards life over many centuries.
