We got the English speaking tour - it was about 45 minutes - amazing pieces that house the relics of Charlemagne. Some interesting history as well.

If you are into art and intricate gold and silver work, this museum is for you. It also had some ancient textiles and other objects from the Catholic Church. Really worth a visit.
