After growing up near Cologne I have visited this museum at least 3 times. I think it is only now as an adult that i fully appreciate it. Definitely worth a visit and the large mosaic is wonderful (if you are a little bored after though don't worry there are 3 breweries near by!).

Huge collection of artefacts (if that's your thing) and a rather well designed internal space. I did not particularly liked it but that's because of my lack of interest in the exhibits...

spent so much time just admiring those stunning Mosaic floors. Great statuary and ordinary items used by the rank and file that were quite ahead of the times. Lovely gift shop too

Excellent museum right besides the cathedral. Fascinating exhibits on Roman items found right on that spot. Don't miss the virtual reality computer showing you the current city and the Roman equivalent. This is really one of the nicest exhibits I have seen to let you understand how a Roman city looked like. But, please, if someone from the museum reads... More

It is situated next to the cathedral and when you are interested in Roman culture you must go there.

I rate this wonderful Roman museum as being one of the top collections of Roman artefacts anywhere in Europe outside Rome, and it even rivals some of those to. Spacious exhibition halls house a truly fabulous collection of Roman finds from Cologne and the nearby Rhine area. We have visited this museum on both our visits to Cologne and spent... More

Because Köln was founded by the ancient Romans, the museum is packed and loaded with Roman antiquities. Impressive and something you do not want to miss when visiting the city.

I didn't have much time on a recent business trip, so I visited this museum, and skipped several others that I'm sure would have also been interesting. I'm really glad I did! This was fascinating. The highlight of the museum is an incredibly well preserved mosaic floor, from a Roman villa which stood on this spot; you can view it... More

Not much in the way of statues and stoneware which I was expecting for some reason, perhaps based on the large reconstruction of the old gateway which is near the entrance. However, the glassware collection and indeed the jewelry is very fine indeed and I feel worth the entrance fee alone. I didn't know such skill with glass was known... More

An interesting archaeological museum presenting old roman artifacts,glass objects,parts of funeral monuments,ancient statues,jewels and weapons.What makes this museum different is the thing it was built on this place,right next to the Dom to house an old roman mosaic.So the mosaic remained on its ancient original place,it wasn't move at all.And the museum was built around it.
