Teseum: treasury

Tongeren is one of the most ancient religious sites in the Low Countries with a major church treasure of the Basilica of Our Lady. It comprises numerous valuable pieces of religious art such as reliquaries, reliquary pouches, gold and silverwork, medieval choir books, and rare textiles.

The museum is located in the historical setting of the unique Romanesque tower and chapter house of Our Lady’s Basilica. In addition to a presentation of the historical church treasury, topics such as liturgy, saints, relics, and the chapter house are also included. With a walk-through “music box,” visitors may view and even listen to centuries-old scores. The museum story ends with the coronation festivities, the link to today and the current tradition.

And there’s more! You’re invited to an exclusive tour of the adjacent Romanesque cloister and lovely monastic garden, one of the city centre’s hidden treasures.

You will make a tour with a multimedia guide, a digital tool brimming with stories that will enthral young and old, as well as providing the information sought by real history enthusiasts. The multimedia guide is available in 4 languages.
