Three Epochs. One Location.
History and tradition
The 'Dominikanermuseum Rottweil' opened in 1992 and comprises an exhibition space of around 1400 square metres. The subsidiary museum of the Archaeological Museum of the State Museum Baden-Baden and State Museum Württemberg is divided into three departments: “Roman Rottweil – Arae Flaviae”, “Sacral Art of the Middle Ages – Collection Dursch” and “Art Room Rottweil, Museum of Contemporary Art”. The highlight of the department “Roman Rottweil – Arae Flaviae” is a wooden tablet from the year 186 AD which not only refers to the city as “municipium” but also mentions Rottweil as the oldest city in Baden-Württemberg. The department “Sacral Art of the Middle Ages – Collection Dursch” comprises around 180 wooden sculptures and tablet paintings and is one of the most important collections of sacral art of the late Gothic era. The room “Art Room Rottweil – Museum of Contemporary Art” displays various public and private regional collections from an art historical perspective.
