Transcript The Story of Nuremberg Chapel, in 1387. It is now used as a fire-station. Opposite this chapel Konrad also founded an almshouse for twelve destitute citizens. It is still marked by the statue of one of the former inmates. The prior and most of the monks adopted the Evangelical creed in 1525 and the rich monastery became the property of the town. Both the church and the monastery were for a long while used for very profane purposes until at last in 1856 they were utilised as a storehouse for the Museum. Then in 1873 t^ie °^ Augustinian Monastery was removed and re-erected as an additional part of the Museum. So vast and varied is the collection of interesting objects here and so careful and elaborate is the German catalogue that it is at once impossible and unnecessary for me to give an exhaustive account. The following notes are intended to serve rather as an index than as a complete guide to the treasures of the Museum; but they make more particular mention of things that may prove interesting to those who care for the " Story of Nuremberg." The various sections of the Museum though called their original architectural purpose—Saal. Halle, Kreuzgang, Kirche, Lichthofgang, etc., are usually numbered consecutively as if they were all rooms of the same I The entrance hall leads into the cloisters of the old BKMiat- tery (walls decorated with Nuremberg heraldry . Thr tir^t portion of the cloister contains an historical collection of monuments (mostly casts) arranged chronologically. Room i (on left). Ceiling ornamented with the arms of the towns which under the old Empire belonged to princes and ! Weapons and implements of the stone age. '\i 2. Bronze weapons and implements. Coins. 276
