It was a bit confusing to get started for us as we had bought our tickets at the tourist Information office near the Porte Nigra so the folks at the Museum did not give us the full run down. Once we figured out we need to go downstairs to get started it was as simple as following the numbers throughout... More

Has displays from neolithic through medieval history of Trier and surrounding area. Many displays are in English, but some only German. Good wheelchair access.

Trier is one of the most historic cities and the oldest in Germany. The museum is really well put together and tells a compelling story of Trier and the surrounding area. I would highly recommend getting the headsets. We didn't and most of the descriptions on exhibits are only in German. I would recommend spending at least 2-3 hours to... More

Extensive collection showing the Neolithic, Celtic, and especially Roman developments in and around Trier. It became the Central European capital for Rome, and huge numbers of coins, mosaics, and sculptures are displayed. There is one good descriptive sign in English in each room, but there are English audiologues available at no extra charge if you want more detail.

We only had a hour before closing so confined our visit to the Roman artefacts of which there are very many and I believe these are the best exhibits in the museum. Do not miss the gold coin hoard and the mosaics as well as the model of Trier in Roman tmes and many roman statues and of course the... More

Two things from this visit will stick with me: First, in the local dialect, the word for archaeologist translates as " mummy tickler". And, yes, there is a mummy in part of the museum. Second, there is a very impressive gold hoard found in the city when a parking garage was being bit. Tons and tons and tons of coins.... More

At the time of my vidsit, there was a resident and exhaustive exhibit of the Roman settlements and influence on Trier and throughout Germany from 100BC to 400CE on top of an already outstanding set of exhibits in the museum on the Roamn influence and settlements, particularly of Trier.

This is how all museums should be - full of interesting stuff, brilliantly displayed. Because the exhibits are given lots of space, you get a much better feel for the scale and detail on some of them. The Roman statues and stonework are impressive but the prehistoric artefacts were my favourite; these displays really help you understand how sophisticated these... More

Had to go back to finish our visit off there is so much to see. Beautiful mosaics and lots of old roman history. Free audio guide and most articles have English transcript along side them. A must visit to this beautiful ancient city.
