Pottery, mosaics and artefacts, not a big museum. If you're really interested in looking at artefacts it's great. If you want detailed information, creativity or wider collections then not the best. Quite cheap would visit if weather not great but not the most exciting museum.

Great learning opportunity about the Cologne history and how dramatically far back it goes. The display of mosaic flooring found when they were excavating for an air raid bunker is very cool.

Conveniently sited next to the Cathedral. Well laid out museum with some fabulous mosaic floors and an amazing collection of Roman glassware. Definitely not to be missed.

This museum makes us think about that old saying. It reminds us of how impressive the Roman Empire was. It is really worth visiting, it shows a nice range of pieces from past centuries, from daily objects to fine artworks.

The roemisch-germanisches-museum is just next to the Cologne cathedral which makes it the perfect companion to visiting the cathedral.
