Several fine museums in this city. This one could be added to this list. A wide range of exhibits, paintings and pieces of arts for a city this size. Worth a visit while visiting this old city on the river. The museum adjacent to the cathedral.

This museum (right next to the cathedral) contains ancient Roman remnants, all found locally. You will be surprised what the Roman civilization left behind right there... PS If you need a bathroom, and you need a few minutes, you can upgrade to the museum for just a few more euros.

OK - I love all things historical and Roman in particular - not that I have ever been to Rome... but in the UK I've visited many Roman sites and thought I knew a bit or two about the Roman culture. Far from it! The most spectacular thing I have ever seen is the giant mosaic still in situ as... More

Mightily impressed with the collection, especially the jewelry of old. I spent a lot of time there, sadly not everything had english text, and some english translations were lacking to say the least. No english audi units either. Overall it was pleasant and the gift shop was good.

I like museums and this one is a good one. Ludwig museum or WR museum are better in Koln, but with MuseumCard, I decided to visit this one and it was a good choice. There are really many things from Roman period and the highlight is a big roman mosaic floor. Worth the visit to spend hour or so around... More

Spent our last day in Koln in this museum which has an extensive range of artefacts and relics. Well displayed and with English guides to the collection.

If you like ancient artifacts that where used by the romans close the Rhine (or what's left), you'll be pleased; personally think that the arrangement is not ideal (not chronologically located) and the content is not too vast.

Enjoy the artifacts from the roman times. Really a great museum and also one of Cologne´s "Must Sees"! don´t miss to walk down the ancient roman stairs outside the museum , it´s around 2000 years old.
