If you like history then this is a must. I love the Roman occupation of Great Britain, so when I was in Cologne this was an added bonus, to be able to compare the legions of the UK , with the legions who occupied Germany. It is great to take the kids to , as most kids love anything Roman... More

This museum is mostly full of glass and clay items from 1000BC-1000AD. Tons of them. The highlight is a huge mosaic floor. Not ideal for kids. Most of the labels and signs are in English, so no audio guide is needed. The location is right next to the main train station and cathedral, so it's super easy to find. If... More

Worth a visit if you have an interest in Roman history. Not a very large museum but a lot of exhibits.

Unfortunately I had a mere 45 minutes to view a museum that should have taken more than four hours to see. As a student of history this museum grabs your interest right from the start by a small exhibit of articles from the Roman occupation period of Cologne's history. These teaser exhibits should pique anyone's interest and draw one into... More

Excellent collection, and well displayed. While we were there there was an extra exhibition of glassware, which was incredible - the detail and preservation, and some of the designs seemed so modern. Well worth a visit.

A nice museum around the roman influence in the area. It is located next to the Dom and the Museum Ludwig in the centre of town next to the railways station so you don't have to walk far.

Amazing find - this is a must see if you are in Koln. The floor mosaic alone is worth the price of admission but you will also find some wonderful examples of Roman culture and artifacts.

It rained the entire time during our one day to sight-see in Cologne, Germany. So after touring the impressive Cathedral we visited the Roman-German museum. I liked the vast displays of statues, heads, an entire three-story tomb, ordinary items, mosaics, wagons, artwork, jars, jewelry, etc. There could have been more explanations of items and their relevance. Admission is inexpensive. The... More

Decided to visit the Römisch-Germanisches Museum after visiting the Cologne Cathedral nearby. It is an interesting history of the Romans along the Rhine. Lots of artifacts. I enjoyed seeing the Dionysus mosaic, which dates from around A.D. 220/230. A good museum to learn some history. The museum has three floors. There is an admission fee. As I recall, the admission...

This museum displays the ancient history of this area with numerous artefacts that were recovered and now placed on display. The mosaic floor is a highlight.
