Roman-germanic Museum - Review
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
This museum is fantastic if you have a fascination for Roman history. They have some very interesting coins, pins, jewelry, coffins, glass, door knobs, and typical household items the romans used. They also have an original floor that was uncovered in that exact spot and preserved and displayed for everyone to see. I have a picture of the floor that I put with this review. This museum is low priced, extensive, and the staff is very friendly.
Museum itself is nice, the mosaic tiles are beautiful with elaborating explanation of details. Most exhibitions have English instruction. However, you have to pay 50 cents to store your bag, and the staff there was only interested in playing her phone and acted as if all visitors had owed her money.
Utterly pointless if you can't speak German. Feel like we've been mugged out of €18.50. Not worth your time or money if you're a non-German tourist.
A good museum with a very large collection of artifacts ranging from pottery to statues and it contains a lot of history and information. Although the tour guides can often be kind of boring. Otherwise I recommend going here.
Underwhelming experience First at all the people who work there seemed really uninterested in us and made no effort to help us. Furthermore the exhibits where very often not translated in English and especially French and even when they where, the translations seems shorter that the German original and often contradicted each other. The exhibits seemed somewhat interesting but that alone can't save the museum. Finally the overpriced tickets didn't help either especially when we where forced to pay extra for our bags
