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.

This was an unexpected treasure in my few hours in Cologne. The scope of the collection is fantastic from the Dionysus mosaic to the household items, recreation of a coach, jewelry from all across the Roman empire, statues and funerary marbles. I loved this place!! I was there for 3 hours.

This museum was incredibly not busy at all with everyone elsewhere. This museum has an extensive range of antiquities from Cologne's history. Most impressive range of Roman glassware, tools, statues. Well worth a visit.

This museum is filled with a large amount and wide array of artifacts. Most of the information is presented in German but it still is enjoyable. We found the museum to be a nice addition to our visit to Cologne.

When we arrived in Cologne for our one day excursion from our river cruise, I was disappointed to find out we were not going on a tour of Cologne cathedral, which was supposed to be included in our cruise, because of Sunday services. We got to walk around on our own after services, but lost out on much information about... More

A great museum of roman history, with a comprehensive collection. If you're undecided, you can walk through the side of the museum and enjoy an open-air free preview

Lots of interesting artifacts, any history or archaeology buffs will really enjoy it. If you want to continue the fun you can get dual tickets for the museum and the archaeology site for a reasonable price
