Robert-Struppmann Museum Lorch am Rhein - Art and "Heimat" Museum

The exhibits are part of an endowment made by the native Lorch Pastor Anton Carl Pfaff to the town in 1922. The focal point is a medieval collection of sculptures which primarily stem from the native area, in particular from Lorch. Of particular note are a Roman bust of St. John, an enthroned Virgin of the Grapes ('Traubenmadonna'), a fragmented Pietà, two reliquary busts of the holy Ursula as well as three saints from the Hadamar School. The museum also holds a collection of ecclesiastical items and a few choice archaeological artefacts dating to the prehistoric and Roman era, as well as a choral book from around 1600 that indicates a Lorch choral tradition.
