A nice museum with permanent exhibitions and changing exhibitions. Exhibits of the history and culture of Trier . Now running a very special exhibition about Karl Marx life and the history of the 19 century. Very recommended. Admission 9 Euros.

Okay museum, but only if you have time to spare. They have some history on the town, but also some other exhibitions. Ask for the free audioguide

Excellent museum very close to the Porta Niagra. Excellent Nero exhibition was on while I was there. Very well laid out and definitely worth a visit. I just wish I'd taken the audio guide, which I will next time.
