  Landesmuseum, Mainz

The enormous state museum of Mainz occupies the old imperial stable buildings of the Kurfürstliche Schloss just up from it on Grosse Bleiche. Its past is symbolised by an outstanding golden statue of a rearing horse on the roof of the entrance. The museum houses a collection of local pieces dating from Roman time onwards, including the original Jupitersäul that can be seen behind St Peter's church diagonally opposite. Some of its other famous artefacts include a Celtic dog made from coloured glass and an ivory Madonna from Trier, in the far west of the state. In addition to the archeology section the museum also includes a gallery, as well as a small Jewish collection.

Directions: At the top of Grosse Bleiche, diagonally opposite the twin spires of St. Peter's church.
