This is a quality museum, but if you are an English speaker with no German, the English audio guide is essential, as there is not a word of written English after you enter the museum.

The museum has many wonderful exhibits - also tucked into magazine holders close to most entrances to galleries are English translations. The museum cafe is tasty as well with a great view of the courtyard (or eat in the courtyard on pretty days).

Very good exhibition of Roman history from this area. That was the main reason for my visit. And I was pleasantly surprised. Well presented. It's only in German but you can rent English commentary. If you're interested in history it is definitely worth to visit....More

We really enjoyed this museum and actually didn't get through all of it before it closed. The fee (5 euros) is very reasonable, so if you don't speak German, pay an extra 2 euros for the audio translation. It was very well done, and when...More

Apart from the museum you can also enter the church next door. The museum is very large and gives a great view on the history of the city of Regensburg

They have organized this rather small museum extremely well. Presenting artifacts form pre-roman, middle ages, up to 1800's. A couple rooms dedicated to local artists are very informative of local culture

Without English illustration unless you pay $2 for the audioguides. Some English language guidebooks available at the exhibition hall. Overall, a mediocre museum without important exhibits. Good connection to local history though

On our walking tour of Regensburg we were keen to visit the historical museum located in the town. To our surprise, on offering our credit card to pay for the entrance, we were told cash only. What major attraction in the world doesn't accept credit...More

This museum explores the history of Regensburg; it has moving exhibitions of artists; has a collection of old paintings from local artists; it has a historic church integrated into the museum; and generally it helps fill in the voids a visitor might have on Regensburg...More

Some wonderful exhibits in this museum. As seniors we paid 2.50 euros entry, what a bargain. Very few people in the museum. The only bugbear is that there was no English notes beside the exhibit but we were able to identify most things and they...More
