About Roman-germanic Museum, Cologne
Prepare to relive the times of the Romans never before. The Romisch-Germanisches Museum is one of the prime archaeological museums of the country. Located right next to Dom, the Romisch-Germanisches Museum is responsible for preserving the Roman heritage in Cologne; their collection of Roman glass from funerals and burials is a result of this.
Everyday items like furniture, toys and jewelry to name a few are a part of their permanent exhibits to aid your insight into what day-to-day life was like during the Roman times. One of the most fascinating exhibits on display is the tomb of a Roman officer, Lucius Poblicius and the 3rd-century Dionysus mosaic also known as the Greek God of wine. A restored 90-yard stretch of the Roman harbor road takes up the southern side of the museum.

Roman-Germanic Museum, Cologne Reviews - Write a Review
The centrepiece of this museum is a very nice and well preserved roman mosaic. The museum has a nice collection of roman artefacts, ranging from tombstones through glassware and daily-use objects to jewellery. However, the exhibition would need a revamp, since most inscriptions are written in German only and they are not written in a particularly captivating way, with relatively little background information. In our experience, hour and a half was enough for the visit.
It is a very interesting place. Yes lots of vases and various cutleries used back in the day but you will see other interesting pieces. It makes more sense with a tour to fully enjoy this museum unless you want to be bored.
Excellent place to spend a day. And you'll need a whole day to appreciate it. One of the excellent features is a Mosaic that can be seen from the outside. This place is packed full of history of Cologne from the Roman era of history. As an American, you can find nothing like this at home. The Roman history in Cologne dates back to its founding in about 30 AD. There are a plethora of artifacts big and small.
Impressive collection of objects discovered by archeologists in Cologne and its surroundings. Mainly related to Roman period, with some exhibits date back to 5000 BC. Some of the descriptions, unfortunately not all of them, are translated to English and French.
Really cool museum with a huge collection of artifacts dating back to the Stone age. Definitely with a visit if you're in Cologne.
