You can buy a museum pass which gives access to the museum and 2 roman sites in Trier for a reduced rate. There was an audioguide, however the layout of the museum was very confusing and there was no one who spoke english to help us. The maps around the museum were also confusing. The museum itself is fascinating and... More

Where do all of the Roman artifacts, relics, coins, pottery, mosaics, pottery and statues that are discovered in Trier end up? In this museum of course. It is an expansive museum covering 4 floors. Also on display is the world's largest cache of gold Roman coins ever discovered (2650 coins - over 40 pounds of priceless gold coins).

A light, airy, well displayed museum in a pleasant park with an outstanding collection of mostly Roman remains from the region. Exhibits were very well displayed and lit and they have rotating special exhibitions.

The museum does an excellent job of walking through the history of Trier starting with the prehistoric and focusing on its role in the Roman Empire. They have an audio guide (included in price) that I could listen to in English and some descriptions are translated into English as well. Some highlights for me were the largest Roman gold coin...

Every historian or history buff should visit "Nero". A very extended showcase: many aspects seen from a historical point of view. The catalogue is a reference book of high value. But one shouldn't ignore the other part of the museum: their normal collection: unbelievable. I hardly saw (outside Rome) such a roman collection. So many aspects of roman life are... More

This museum has a superb collection of Roman artifacts. However for Anglophones the museum is not that helpful. In each room there is a brief description generally setting the time period. That description is in many languages. After that the descriptions are all in German. I had an audio-guide but it only described one or two artifacts in each room.... More

I went to see an exhibition about Emperor Nero, after paying to get in, I went on my merry way around the exhibition only to realise that there wasn't much support for English speakers. When I left, I was told that I could purchase an English recording of the exhibition. A potentially good exhibition let down by poor customer service.

The Landesmuseum is full of Roman artifacts including statuary, mosaics, and the huge trove of over 1,500 gold coins recovered from in the 1990s. There's also a layout of what the city may have looked like in Roman times. The museum is a sort walk from Constantine's basilica. I managed to escape from a river cruise walking tour and do...

We enjoyed exploring the museum and had the English audio guide to help us around. Be aware the audio guide does not have information on every exhibit and there is no written English signs so many exhibits you can look at but have no information on. This is a great activity for a wet day and our family enjoyed seeing... More

What a great museum for Roman history lovers. Go here first before touring the Ponta Nigra and the Baths to get a better perspective on Roman Trier. The 10 Euro combi-ticket for the museum and the multimedia show is well worth it. During the show you will get an idea of what the Roman archeological remains would have looked like... More
