Enjouyable and well,laid out and a very impressive mosaic on the floor which is probably the standout of the collection but other pieces will impress if your into Roman history. Well worth a look particularly on a wet day.

It's incredible to think that in Colon there were many of Romans ruins and history. If you are interested in that, please visit the museum. They have a combined ticket museum + praetorium (romans ruins), very intersting and the combo is cheaper!

Never did I expect such a treasuretrove of finds from the Cologne region, including an almost complete mosaic floor. There is so much that there is even one room devoted entirely to oil lamps (classified by genre). I loved it!!

Unless you are really into Germano-Roman times, this will be a little boring after 30 mins. It is mostly old gravestones as well as some other artefacts, however only some of the explanation text is available in languages other than German, so for non German speakers it can be boring. The highlight is the large mosaic, however this can be... More

We visited Cologne for three days and had to divide our time between all of the great Museums. As it turned out three days was mot enough time to see everything. This museum jad some very interesting displays and depicted Roman life in "Germania". If you are interested in Roman and early European history make this a must see.

The museum has fantastic exhibits - a huge collection of Roman glasswork, jewellery, wonderfully preserved mosaics to name just a few. Lots of stairs but I did see a lift - don't know how accessible it would be for wheelchairs and pushchairs.... I didn't see any in the museum while we were visiting. The museum needs to be updated however... More

A must-see when you are in Cologne. You will be surprised to see how the Romans shaped German history (like bringing wine-culture to Germany).

Apart from two interesting mosaics and a few random objects that have been dug up in the area. The vast majority of the museum's collection seems to consist of Roman grave stones, which I got sick of looking at very quickly. This museum is good if you have to kill an hour or so or if you want to get... More

A great collection which looks at the Roman's in Cologne - and their legacy. Some great works of art, especially the glass-ware and jewelry. As a Doctor I particularly liked the Roman Doctors Sets (of which they have three !)
