Went here two hours before closing. It was not crowded. It costs 5€ percent. person, and you get a lot for that. The info posters and charts are in both German and English on the first floor. At the second floor, the charts give more...More

It is said that every stone has a history in cologne. In fact every time a project is started and the digging begins everything stops because some artifacts are found and need to be recovered almost every time. The museum gives you an overall insight...More

This museum is an archeological site built around the discovery of a Roman floor mosaic. That Cologne was an important commercial place and blown glass making center is easily seen in a superb gathering of Cologne made Roman glass and many local tomb finds.

This museum featured many roman artifacts found in and around of Cologne. The prime feature is a magnificent mural found at the site!

Had to come on a Tuesday (closed on Mondays) right before leaving the city. Got in right when it opened--along with at least 3 school groups. Lots to see, especailly the mosaics and galleries with items from everyday life. Signage in German.

Museum is about the Roman influence on cologne. But if you've been to Rome or italy this is not very interesting. The Mosaic inside is a sight to behold. If you haven't seen Roman history before it'll be interesting but otherwise not highly recommended.

We had great expectations as we have a keen interest in historical subjects in general, and Roman history in particular. Our major impression of this attraction was of a huge collection of items, many of them very alike, displayed in a not very attractive manner....More

Visited here and was really surprised at the level of collection in museum. Great art from Middle Ages up to really good collection of Impressionist and post impressionist pictures. Well worth a visit on a visit to Cologne.
