This is a perfect example of why we travel. Looking for a particular church, misreading the map, and thinking we had stumbled upon an alternate entrance to "the" church. We were in the wrong place at just the right time. Inside this unassuming building was...More

This museum has an excellent collection and it includes access to a Gothic church. The negative is that the signage is all in German so those of us who do not read German don't get as much out of the visit as we would like....More

Parts of this are a real discovery. If you are interested in Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman or Saxon history and archaeology, these galleries are very impressive. The later history is not - they've tried to jazz it up for younger visitors and the result...More

This is a quality museum, but if you are an English speaker with no German, the English audio guide is essential, as there is not a word of written English after you enter the museum.

The museum has many wonderful exhibits - also tucked into magazine holders close to most entrances to galleries are English translations. The museum cafe is tasty as well with a great view of the courtyard (or eat in the courtyard on pretty days).

Very good exhibition of Roman history from this area. That was the main reason for my visit. And I was pleasantly surprised. Well presented. It's only in German but you can rent English commentary. If you're interested in history it is definitely worth to visit....More

We really enjoyed this museum and actually didn't get through all of it before it closed. The fee (5 euros) is very reasonable, so if you don't speak German, pay an extra 2 euros for the audio translation. It was very well done, and when...More

Apart from the museum you can also enter the church next door. The museum is very large and gives a great view on the history of the city of Regensburg

They have organized this rather small museum extremely well. Presenting artifacts form pre-roman, middle ages, up to 1800's. A couple rooms dedicated to local artists are very informative of local culture

Without English illustration unless you pay $2 for the audioguides. Some English language guidebooks available at the exhibition hall. Overall, a mediocre museum without important exhibits. Good connection to local history though
