This museum contains an amazing collection of Roman and allied decorative arts. If that is your thing, it's unlikely you will see better anywhere. I was very impressed by the ceramics. Also included are many stone carvings, capitals, tombs and the like, along with splendid...More

We just love museums and this was really interesting. I had no idea that the Romans had settled so far north. The mosaics were amazing. I highly recommend that you see both this museum and the cathedral as they are right next door to each...More

This museum is well laid out and has some amazing exhibits. I enjoyed seeing the progression of tools, pottery, jewelry (for men and women) and furniture over the ages and in different continents. There are two substantial floor mosaics, which are a must see if...More

Köln’s Römisch-Germanisches Museum is well worth a visit if you and your party love history and archeology. Anyone who doesn’t is likely to be a little bored, while those who do can geek out. There are some fine mosaics from Roman villas, at least one...More

It's next to the Dom and is very worth visiting. The museum shows off many ancient artefacts, especially when it comes to glassmaking (there is one cup from the 4th century!). Very interesting visit to give you some historical insights of Colognes/Germanys roman history

This museum is right next to the Dom. It houses a lot of artifacts. Very interesting to walk through particularly the mosaic that it’s built around. You can see this from outside the building as well.

As an archaeologist, I was generally familiar with the material in the museum so the lack of English description was ok. But looking at the plaques, it seemed like even the German information was limited. That said, it is an interesting collection and worth a...More

Whilst traveling through Cologne I visited the Roman museum and Roman sewage’s. Impressive collection of Roman times in the region. I was amazed at the size of the collection and the good condition. You could spend hours trying to take it all in but don’t...More

Visited both the Roman-German Museum and Praetorium to learn more about the Roman period in Cologne. The Museum has a original floor mosaics discovered in the last century or two, and a large collection of stonework, but what I really liked best was the extensive...More

One can spend weeks here. Students working on degrees in archeology or cultural anthropology would find this museum valuable. To a layperson this museum was educational and inspiring. It made studying Latin for three years in high school come to life. Those three years were...More
