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.

This is a great Museum, in the truest sense of the word. Incredible collection of Roman relics, reconstructions, maps etc. Also much older stuff from Germanic tribes and earlier inhabitants. A full day would not be enough to see everything. This museum is worth a trip to Cologne just to see it, but no trip to this city would be complete without a visit to one of the beer halls. Go to the tourist office, get a map, and explore.
Nice Museum of Roman and Germanic history right next to the Cologne dome. A huge amount of ancient findings are exhibited. Almost too much to go digest everything properly.
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.
Great opportunity to get your photo next to the busts of the Roman emperors like Caligula. It was exciting to understand how to decipher the old Roman tombstones, COH is short for Roman military cohort! My children were excited to draw connection with the Rick Riordon books.
Cool exhibits, there's even a Mosaic floor that's been preserved in the place where it was found. I highly recommend also getting a ticket to the Praetorium.
