“More Than Meets the Eye...”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

This museum was dynamic. There was something about it that singles it out from all the other museums displaying Roman artefacts. It really made you see their day - to day lives. The way that everything is displayed makes its easily available to children so that the hole family can understand and take part. Beautiful statues, mosaics, art and history make this a good destination. It is very accessible as it it is right in the centre of Cologne.

“Surprising!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

I have seen Roman artifacts in Italy before - the usual statues and other objet d'art. This museum has those elements but also focuses on day to day objects - like oil lamps, toys, and other household items. I was amazed by the extensive collection of pottery and glassware that gave a good sense of life in Roman times. In addition, there are displays of artifacts from inhabitants of the region before and after the Roman era. Overall, a great experience. I'm glad I visited.
