The museum was build to host one of the large mosaics, which is quite well preserved and can be admired from the outside through a window. A second mosaic shows several philosophers. Also on display is the very large grave monument some soldier had made...More

Absolutely mid-blowing trip through the Roman history of Cologne. So much to see, including fabulous mosaics, pottery, glassware and sections on how the Romans lived.
