This is a place where we find where the name of Cplpgne come from. Exposition is very clear and easy to follow. Lot of items are shown for THE FIRST TIME, at least for us. We are very keen about Roman history and that Museum gave us lot and more of knowledge. Thank You! Vielen Danke!!!

“Impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Only had the opportunity to visit it on a Monday. Sadly the museums in this city are closed on a Monday, so be aware. In saying this we were able to view some of the exhibits from the large plate glass windows. Look down and see the ancient Roman floor mural and statues. Would have great to see the whole museum but time did not permit.

“Romans were big on Rhine.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Right next to the Dom this excellent museum is beautifully presented. The display is on two floors and they have a complete villa floor of mosaics which is very impressive. My only small niggle is that the detailed information is only in German the general information is in both English and German. (In the basement are some nice free toilets which seem hardly used, handy on your way round)

The museum is situated next to the famous Dom. Amazing architecture; constructed on the site a roman villa, unveiling the most wonderful mosaïc floor in situ. Great collection.

This is a remarkable institution that showcases overlap of Germanic and Roman times. Many beautiful artifacts and much to learn.
