We were in Trier in a rainy day and after the tourist tour we were recommended to go to the Landes Museum. Since it was drizzly and cold we decided to follow the advice. The person at the ticket counter was not the most pleasant to start with and we could not get ourselves well understood. Perhaps they have audio... More

I love Roman and German history, so I loved Trier and the Rheinisches Landesmuseum, it exceeded my expectations. The exhibits are adequately spaced and an English language brochure is available for visitors not proficient in German. As a collector of Roman coins, I was and am amazed to see the Roman hoard of gold aurei, as well of other hoard... More

enjoyed every second of my visit to Trier and to this museum. it was all fascinating and i was fortunate to visit during the "off-season" so there were no crowds and i could really spend time savoring the museum exhibits and pondering the Roman culture as it is shown here. recommend without hesitation.

The museum covers pre-history to modern times, but their Roman collection - particularly the mosaics - is the highlight. Th exterior of the building gives no hint of how modern, light and spacious it is inside. Reasonable entrance fee, and lockers where you can drop your bag and not have to lug it around. Highly recommended.

What I like about this place was the roman period of Trier. They have a remarkable collection of archaeological objects from Romans. It was great to see some roman sculptures with their original colors. The Roman mosaics were beautiful as well. The rest of the museum is ok, with some interesting pieces. On the other hand, I had the fortune... More

This is a great museum of Roman antiquities. The prehistoric and medieval and early modern galleries are of some interest but the superbly presented Roman objects are outstanding. Particularly important are the grave monuments, especially the one carved in the shape of a wine ship, the mosaics and the early Christian remains (graveslabs with Christian symbols, lamps and vessels with...

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.
