We loved the mosaics! We recommend you buy the museum pass (2day) as it will get you into several museums around Cologne.

The mosaic, dating back to around 200 AD, is absolutely fantastic. The whole museum was built around the mosaic in an originally Roman villa. You could visit this museum just for this one artifact if you are a history lover. I also found the portrait heads on the top floor very interesting. Otherwise, nothing particularly unique that you haven't seen... More

This museum was built, when Roman artifacts were discovered right under the cathedral. Here you can get a glimpse of this impressive city and how it all began more than 2000 years ago. Walk through Cologne and see the modern side of it...step into the museum and be amazed at the sophistication of this city under Roman command so long... More

while you see everything from spears of neanderthals, to roman rings and jewellery.. to sculptures destroyed during the second world war.. it is charming to realize that everything in this museum relates to cologne. and then you realize that the insanely unbelieavable heritage of this city

Beautiful artifacts found through the area showing the history of Germany and the Roman influence. There is a tile floor that was found in the excavation of the site that the museum sits on that was saved, it is amazing how it was saved hundreds of years later.

The Roman-German Museum houses a tremendous number of artifacts from the era of Roman settlements. The mosaic floors are particularly interesting. That said, it would have been helpful to have an audio tour, or other information about how the exhibits are organized. Be sure to include the room on the main floor when you visit. It has photos and objects... More
