It was the most interesting place I have visited in Mainz. Linking past with the future, not too crowded, not overpacked. Just perfect to see, learn and understand. Big thank you to wonderful ladies who gave us introduction in English :)

This place was a great surprise. It is located inside a small shopping mall--and indeed, this ancient Roman temple was only discovered in the course of excavations to build the mall. The exhibit is free. A lot of printed information is provided--all in German--but you...More

An amazing find and well presented. I get a kick of exploring ancient artifacts in the basement of a mall. There was no entry fee. They had a translation of the exhibits in English including an audio presentation. An interesting insight into the Roman religion...More
