Museum area was huge. We spend there 3 hours and still we couldn't see everything. There was the main museum and other buildings that were explaining how romeans build their houses. There was also archeological findings that they have found in the area. Place was worth of visiting.

This LVR Romer Museum is part of the LVR Archeological Park Xanten (APX) and the entrance is on the same ticket as for the park.

The museum is very large and covers four flours. There is a ramp that leads you along all the exhibits that are in chronological order starting with the people that lived in the are before the Romans came. At any level there are stairs and an elevator to short cut the route.

There is a lot to see and everything is well displayed with good lighting. Signs at the displays are in German, Dutch and English but the German text is more extensive than the Dutch and English.

I took a guided tour on glass making in Roman times which was interesting. I believe those guided tours are held every first Sunday of the month but check the LVR website for details.

Part of the museums are the foundations of what once was a large Roman bathhouse. This area is covered against the rain but otherwise open to let the air move freely so keep your coat on in winter there.

There is a shop at the entrance and lockers/toilets in the basement but no café for coffee/snacks. You have to go outside for that to the nearby (100m) KaffeeMühle where they have good food too.

Spent an afternoon here at the Römer Museum on outskirts of Xanten. Plenty of parking but be prepared for lots of walking as the site covers quite a large acreage. This is important if your mobility is limited. Had no idea about Roman history on this part of Europe. So a great deal of information to absorb.
Museum at far end of site excellent but note bags have to be left in lockers in basement.
Well worth a visit.

I went to the Park and Museum on the first Monday in the month when entrance is free!
Above everything else I was SO surprised to find AT LAST a German museum complex that is genuinely welcoming to international visitors! Everything you need to know is in multiple languages and the staff are welcoming and friendly!
The Park itself is in reality more of an "artist's Impression" than an archaeological site, but the Museuem, constructed over some of the more interesting remnants of the vast Baths complex is well laid out and organised. Not normally being encouraged to linger in German Museums, I actually wished I'd had more time to spend here!

This large museum build according to the dimensions of the Roman Baths which were built under Emperor Hadrian around 125 CE, is very accessible and clear. The ramps lead you chronologically and it is easy to follow the history this way. It is also "Hands on" at certain displays which makes for fun.
There were many school groups visiting the museum on the day. Most of the groups stand aside to let the other visitors pass but at least one primary school teacher really had no respect for others. This group blocked every exhibit and when you are there before them they simply ran in and push you away. This was sad because it really spoiled the experience for me. Maybe The museum staff who are everywhere in attendance can give some attention to this
Overall worthwhile

Not only is it extensive and the exhibits presented in wellit glass cases but having a convenient elevator makes it possible for people with limited mobility to go from one level to another. The documentation in English was MOST welcome,something not always available.
