The museum is situated next to the famous Dom. Amazing architecture; constructed on the site a roman villa, unveiling the most wonderful mosaïc floor in situ. Great collection.

We spent close to two and a half hours in the Romisch-Germanisches Museum on a rainy day in July and could not have been happier with the displays, the artifacts, and the history. The main Mosaic floor and the other mosaics were amazing as were the statuary, jewelry, weapons, and even a wagon. We bundled this ticket with the Praetorium... More

If you like roman history then this is a very good place. there is also the beautiful mosaics - 2 of them actually - the dionysius mosaic and the philosophers house mosaic - these mosaics are complete...if you have not or will not get a chance to see roman mosaics anywhere else then spend the euro 9 and get inside...

This museum was a surprise. I did not expect such an impressive collection. If you are interested in artifacts from this period of history, this is a museum you should not miss. Highly recommended.

One wouldn't expect such a rich roman museum in Cologne, which was a former roman colony! however the collection is impressive and very rich.

The museum is well situated in the centre of Cologne next to the cathedral. The entry fee of 9 euros is fair as the exhibition is well displayed and extensive. Personally, i'd recommend the museum, however my only niggle was that there were too few English information cards with regards to the exhibits, however, we had an enjoyable and interesting... More

Most enjoyable visit with some fine mosaics. In most of the permanent galleries there are French and English translations. However, in the special exhibitions there is no translation and it is quite hard to work out what one is seeing. We were disappointed at the facilities in the museum, nowhere to get a coffee and take a break, no Guide... More

We really enjoyed this museum. It will be time well spent. The most amazing thing is a tile floor from the days of the Romans. It is the original floor in the original location.
