Sepulchral culture (from Latin: sepulcrum = grave) not only deals with graves, memorials and burial places, but is concerned with all parts of death culture. Sepulchral culture reflects a region’s particular culture and religion, as well as the relationship to history and nature. It reflects social aspects as well as the artistic output of a certain period. No other term defines the topic as broadly as sepulchral culture does. This was an important reason for the founders in selecting a name for the museum.

The museum is one of only seven museums in Europe which deal specifically with the themes dying, death, burials and commemoration in our society. The permanent exhibition, as well as changing special exhibitions show the continuity and change in our dealing with the four last things - as death, judgement, hell and paradise. 1400 square meters of exhibition space present historical and present-day objects of sepulchral culture, mainly from German-speaking countries.
