Collection of coins

A nice museum with focus on Roman Empire. They also have a unique coin collection worth visiting! Make sure to check the Antikencard if you visit Trier.

The museums exhibitions are excellent - really high quality on the display with a perfect amount of text - It's hard to believe this museum is "only" a regional museum and not a National museum. They have so many excellent artefacts on display. The staff is kind and helpful Definitely worth a visit!

This museum starts with prehistory and traces the cultures that inhabited this area. The museum's collections are extensive and well explained--especially if you speak/read German. It will take hours to properly see and understand all that is offered. Give yourself time. It will be well spent.

We only had about 2 1/2 hours to see the whole museum, could have used at least another hour. The Rhineland Museum was an after thought for us to go to after seeing the baths. Much more to see at the Museum than at the baths, so we wished we would have seen the museum first. The price to get... More

While visiting the Imperial Baths we bought an admissions ticket that included the museum. This museum was wonderful. Make sure to get the audio guide, only 1€, as there is very little in English. Plan about two hours. VERY nice display on the city and the Romans. This is a must see.

The collection of Roman grave monuments is impressively displayed in a long hall that simulates how they would have been placed outside a typical Roman town. The immensity and number of the monuments, as well as the well-done resoration on reproduced segments offered a new insight into both Roman life and art.

Most of the artifacts( and there are many) are from the local area. This was the northernmost "capitol" of Roman Germania.and the mosaic floors and statuary, in and around the museum, are simply incredible. The highlight, for me, was a Roman coin collection found while building a new parking garage! It is incredible!

Museum had a very impressive display of old Roman artifacts. No English subtitles but audio guide available for a Euro to tell about some of the ruins.
