“Return after 40 years”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I loved this museum as a 16 year old on my first trip abroad. It is still fantastic, especially the glassware.

“Very interesting with hundreds of exhibits”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Spent a couple of hours in this very interesting museum and were overwhelmed by the amount of exhibits on show. Having a stiff leg following a recent fall, I was pleased to see that there were plenty of seats around which enabled me to sit and look at the exhibits in more detail. The only niggle was that the majority of descriptions were in German and although I did learn German at school it was many years ago and not of much use. That being said, we did enjoy our visit.

“Those Romans”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Unbelievable that such a well structured people lived here so long ago, and that they were so civilised. Unfortunately special exhibits were only explained in German, so we could only look and admire rather than look and acquire knowledge.
