The Roman-Germanic Museum is an archaeological museum in Cologne with a large collection of Roman artifacts from the Roman settlement in CCAA ("Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium", the Roman colony from which Cologne developed).

The original location of the museum was behind the Cathedral, but there are extensive renovations being performed there, so part of the collections were moved to the temporary location on Cäcilienstrasse 46.

The museum shows exhibits of 100,000 years of settlement history in the Rhineland, from Paleolithic times to the early Middle Ages.

The museum shop in the temporary location is quite poor: I could not find a guide to the museum collection.

People with disabilities are entitled to reduced entrance fees in all museums and exhibitions in the EU and this particular Institution is no exception. Everything would be perfect if it wasn't for the discrimination made against disabled individuals holding a disability card issued by a foreign jurisdiction! Indeed, if you do not hold a disability card issued by German authorities, you do not qualify for the reduced fee. You are basically denied equal treatment. While students registered in non German Universities are logically identified based on Student IDs issued abroad, why is a different set of rules applied to disabled people? This makes no sense.

We visited in August while doing a short trip to the city and we were done in 30-45 minutes...I don't know what's the collection like usually, but there are only few pieces shown in this temporary re-location, which makes the visit quite quit and a bit disappointing...

The main museum remains closed. Some of the exhibits are outhoused in the Belgian House, which due to its size cannot contain everything nor the main attraction of the main museum that is the mosaic. That said, there is still enough in the temporary museum over its 2 floors to provide sufficient 'WOW' factor! Some of the glassware and jewellery on display is superb.
The temporary museum has only a small shop and no refreshment facilities.

The museum is currently closed for renovations for at least 5 years. We saw the mosaic and the monument which stunning. There is a smaller museum set up at the Belgium house. Definitely worth a visit. There were many unique and interesting pieces set up on 2 floors of the building. Plenty to see.

Went to visit to be told that the museum is currently closed for renovations for 5yrs. But we could view the mosaic and the monument which are 1800 years old. What amazing pieces of ancient craftmanship. The mosaic containing over 1 million pieces is something to behold. There is a smaller museum set up in the meantime. Still worthwhile for a short visit.

This Museum locates right next to the Cologne Cathedral and the main train station. Unfortunately, the museum was not opened on our day of visit. However, we Manage to do some window shopping.

Been here a few times on previous holidays to Cologne so I was a bit disappointed to find it closed as it's being renovated at the moment and the foreseeable future, it's an interesting museum ,I'm not really into museums but I love the history of the Roman Empire so this is normally a place I feel at home in.
Let's hope the renovations dont take too long so we can all enjoy this great museum.
Easy to locate along Roncalliplatz but at the moment closed.

The museum is apparently closed for the next 5 years for renovations. There is supposedly a private tour you can pay for to be taken into some parts of it by prior arrangement. The mosaic is visible from the outside though.
