Great collection, audioguides in several languages available at no extra cost, though there should be more audio available. For several rooms there's no audio and you have to be able to read the German texts. This is something they should improve upon. I was stunned by the Roman grave monuments that were carefully restored, pieced together and missing parts added so you could really see what it would have looked like 2000 years ago.

This museum has some fantastic Roman, pre-Roman, Middle Ages and Renaissance artifacts from the Mosel River Valley. The Roman collection is particularly good. You can check your coats and backpacks etc before you enter where you buy tickets. Audioguides in English are available in the gift shop (you have to leave an id such as a driver's licence as guarantee you will bring them back; standard in most museums). The fantastic Roman mosaics alone are worth a visit as are seeing some of the original 2000 year old wood pylons from the first Roman bridge along the Mosel. Couple of issues with the museum though: it's a bit complicated figuring out the layout of the museum even with the map they give you. More importantly, none of the signs or descriptions of objects are in English, only German. The English audioguide is good as far as it goes which isn't far enough--not all interesting artifacts are on the audioguide. But still worth a visit.

Well documented in German, English and French on almost every label. Even if you don't have time to see the museum walk by it (even after hours) as several thing are in the passage way and you can look into the glass walls and see many things 24 hours a day.

Both in the old and in the new wings the history of Trier and its rulers is presented in a most accessible manner. From coins and small bronzes to massive sculpture that could not be saved in situ, everything is there, and well labelled too. In German - so, non German speakers may find a leaflet in other languages useful. At the end wait a nice restaurant - and fountains in the Electoral palace gardens.

We had some difficulty with this venue. We used the internet site for the opening times and cost, to begin with. We arrived early and found that there was a special "roman" encampment and games outside. When the museum itself finally opened (more than 45 minutes late) we learned that the cost INCLUDED the encampment. There was NO other way to view the inside exhibits. AND the cost was NOT that listed on the web site.
Being barely a German speaker or reader, the extremely few exhibit signs had an English translation available. The pamphlet guide we were given when we bought the tickets was totally German. While it is clearly a museum of great value for this region of Germany through the ages, literally, it was difficult to fine one´s way through and to difficult to understand. Too bad!
