  • Very few English descriptions of the items, almost entirely German so the free audio English guides are absolutely essential, Great exhibits of Roman cemetery monuments, and floor mosaics. This....  more »
  • We are big fans of Roman ruins and the empire’s impact. We are impressed by the museum’s large amount of mosaics and funerary art. The model of Roman Trier, a city of 80,000, is very impressive...  more »
  • ?Absolutely worth your while and money. Bring enough energy and eat and drink properly: it is definitely a big museum. The quality of the Roman art and statues is worthy of the same quality as Louvre and Prado in respectively France and Spain. Great job trier. One big minus ➖: 🇩🇪German government where are the English translations??! So far for a European union
  • Its a huge museum and would take an entire day to see it all. If you don't have that much time, there are 3 things not to miss 1. Frescoes on the walls of Roman houses - Few of the retrieved wall frescoes have been expanded to give an idea of how the whole wall would have looked like. 2. Roman sculptures & architecture - Most of Roman Sculptures that were excavated here, are here in display. 3. Roman Mosaics - This museum has the largest collection of Roman Mosaics in the north of Alps!
