“Undewhelming”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Honestly I was not impressed, but if you're in the area, you might as well go see it. A visit of 30 minutes is more than long enough.

“Charlemagne Artifacts Worth Seeing”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Often the Treasuries associated with cathedrals are filled with Christian art...after the 40th Madonna and Child, you glaze over. Not true here. The artifacts were really fascinating, especially if you have an interest in the history of Aachen, the Cathedral and Charlemagne. We enjoyed it more than we expected.

“Some beautiful objects”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

The silver-gilt bust of Charlemagne is wonderful as are some of the other objects but many of the reliquaries and monstrances are pretty gruesome! The Coronation objects are impressive.
