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.

Why you should consider not going there... It's not finished. It's under construction. You pay 9 euro's for a site that is not finished. At all. There are fences. Lots of fences. Lot of grass as well. Kilometres of grass and fences and a couple of unfinished structures. We came from the Netherlands, to visit the temple of the Matronae.... More

A good day out for a reasonable price, they clearly state what was original and what was a replica, most of the things are written in English, the only down side is that the week end shows are only in german. There is a picnic area, and a play park for the younger children and the coffee is the same... More

Architecturally, the model for this museum seems to be a shopping mall. The effect is oddly off-putting. Also, there is too much reliance on models and replicas--very few authentic displays. On the other hand, if you spend the time and read the labels and use the ample multi-media aids, you'll learn a lot, at a price.

A lovely place to visit. Just do not expect to see to much of the Remains of Roman Buildings. It is a worth a visit if you are interested in the history of the Roman Empire including teenagers. The museum is nicely layed out. The information is given in german, english and dutsch. Which all has been presented and explained... More
