Great insight can be gained into the culture and daily life in Roman times through these exhibits. The reason for not giving it a greater rating is that these treasures deserve better curation and more updated technology for their display. Also, staff was not very friendly. At one point I was approached and questioned by a guard if I had... More

This museum is slightly out of the way but very much worth the little detour. It has the best exhibits on Roman Trier, including a massive gold coin treasure that was found during construction work in 1993. Plus a large model of the City in Roman Times when it was the largest city north of the alps. Highly recommended!

Trier was a capotal of the Roman empire once. You can still find a lot of remnants from this period in Trier. The Landesmuseum gives a good oversight of the history of Trier, especially during the Roman time. With lots of artefacts, and different modern media, you can get a good oversight of this history.

A nice museum. Especially valuable is that in it is very fully represented the ancient period in the history of the city - what remained after the christianization of Trier. Luxurious Roman mosaics, ancient sarcophagi, Roman glass vessels, bronze and terracotta miniatures and more, stone tools of bronze age, weapons and jewelry from the Celtic burials, an extensive numismatic collection,...

We visited the Rheinisches Landesmuseum on a rainy day and happily spent several hours there. This pleasant museum presents artefacts form the Stone Age to Early Modern Times in a chronological order, with a special focus on the Roman period. The objects are beautifully arranged. What may otherwise have been a boring collection of Stone Age arrows points against a... More

Very informative museum. Great collection of Roman mosaic. Also lots of architectural elements from the sites around the city as well as earlier archaeological materials. Not many of the descriptions are in English but there is a free audio guide in English. They could do with some more informative information about their exhibits not just in English but in other...

We really loved the Roman artifacts in this museum. We made a mistake and spent too much time in the first part of the museum, and lost some energy by the time we got to the super amazing Roman mosaics, artifacts, and sculptures. The final rooms of Trier history are also interesting. We used the English (free) audio guide which... More

As someone who is drawn to museums I was very impressed with this one. There was so much to see, although I was a bit confused as to whether or not it was open due to all the building work going on around the entrance. The other downside was the shortage of information in English to help you understand the... More

I witnessed the new 3D show of the museum. It's colorful and the story catching. They have a big collection of vestiges

Even though there is a treasure trove of artifacts here, English is limited, even with the free audio guide (for which you need your passport for a loan, which is weird). There is an English translation of the placards before you enter a room but most of the objects inside don't have audio guide translations. Thus as someone else said,... More
