The museum is actually rather small but worth a couple of hours. The large mosaics are awesome and I have never seem so many glass artifacts in one piece as here.
After paying 8 euros we set off round the museum. I thought it was an art museum to start with as 2 rooms full of pictures, then we went to the other floors which were full of artifacts. Unfortunately this museum was not for me and not one I would be in a rush to go back to.
This museum is definitely not to be missed... The roman floor is simply amazing, hard to believe that it is still in its almost pristine state in situ thousands of years after it was laid! A great selection of interesting day to day artefacts from roman times as well as other periods. if you buy tickets for this museum also... More
This is one of the best displayed and curated museums I have ever seen, globally. While not large, the displays are terrific--don't miss the amazing mosaic floors from ancient buildings, the Roman arch, the glass made in Roman Cologne. If you only have time for one museum, choose this one!

We travel a lot, and the contents of this museum were interesting, but we have seen these typical artifacts many, many places. Our guide was excellent and made many of the exhibits more interesting because his knowledge and humor were so extensive. He made us think and answer questions about history and made us pretend to be sleuths. The museum... More
The museum is packed with Roman artifacts. Impressive nearly complete tile mosaic floor. Artifacts from throughout their life: cooking, education, jewelry, coffins, etc. There are so many artifacts, that they have many outside the museum on the grounds.
This museum is an absolute gem. It must not be overlooked!!! When you walk in to the museum, you are treated to a view of a large mosaic on the bottom floor, as you read about the mosaic, you begin to realize that the museum itself was built over Roman ruins, and that the mosaic you are admiring has never...
