The most impressive part of this museum is the 3rd century floor mosaic. Everything else lacks content a bit. Could use more informative and explaining texts on walls/in pamphlets/tablets/etc.

This museum has the most extensive collection of Roman glass, pottery, jewelry and some more. It's a lot to take in but the way the items are displayed is a delight for ones eyes. If you like Roman history this is the place to be.
