This is the site of a large Roman city that is still being excavated. Thy have an exceptional museum with a very large collection of artifacts beautifully displayed. The museum also has attractions kids like. In addition they have a reconstructed Roman arena with mock battles and reconstructed buildings that display life in Roman times.

The park is a huge are and obviously still developing. The "arena" and the indoor museum is interesting but a more houses, maybe a whole street, with handcraft etc would make the park more interesting without making it to Disneyland

OK it is not Pompei or Ephesus.... just a few original remains, most have been rebuilt (quite accurately) but a lot of effort was put to document and explain the life as it may have been in the place. More than the replica of the amphitheatre or the harbor temple, the reconstructed roman shops and houses convey a feeling of... More

I went with my dog as a side trip from the Netherlands and really enjoyed the park, despite the rain. I took pictures of the Roman columns and the amphitheater. I climbed the stairs and walked the wall in front of the theater for a view of the theater. I really like history and it does not matter to me... More

Not much left of the city it once was, so all you see is rebuilt. But that is excellent: it gives you a very good impression of a Roman house, you can visit it all. It's also fascinating to see how big the place was. Don't miss the museum, with the remnants of the old town bath house and many... More

We visited the LRV Roman museum again. My history-major son said it was maybe the best museum he has seen. Great collection, well presented. We learned a lot about the history of the Romans in Germany. The audio guide and description are superb. Also the Roman therms are presented in their original location in condition. We like that better than... More

Took my canadian friend and she was impressed! I have been to the park several times and it is great to see that they are still finding relics and that they still do their reserch. My friend was stunned and overwhelmed by what she learned about the Romans.
