  • We are extra to Trier for the weekend came around us exhibition at all three museums to see the Nero. The National Museum was the best by far. Absolutely worth seeing is also the normal exhibition, but Nero is a must.

  • Trier City remains of Roman all over the place. Just like trier State Museum is evaluated as one of the largest Archaeological Museum in Germany, boasts a particularly Roman culture, far richer content. Must-see Museum said.

  • Extremely interesting history with a wide variety of historical things. Must-see in Trier.
  • Interesting
  • Excellent.
  • Very pretty comprehensive collection of Antiquities, poor signage, we had to wait 45 minutes until a film was over to be able to with the tour. Almost everything in German only so if you understand that bad you're out of luck. The museum Shop was close and some of the most beautiful pieces such as the processed in Golden Aurei attributes were not there. A lot of potential but fell through this business really against.

  • The Rheinische Landesmuseum presents fantastic finds from Roman times, especially from Trier and surroundings, which no trier visitor should miss. The very helpful and friendly staff from different Nations has very pleasantly surprised us. The Nero exhibition is worth a visit and well attended. We had to wait even an hour in front of the main entrance on inlet, the rush was so great on the day of our visit. Unfortunately the multimedia show failed due to a technical fault "Light and shadow", which we also wanted to take part in. She should be worth a visit and costs only a small fee to the museum ticket (caution: individually booked this show is pretty expensive). Unfortunately, the bus connections to the Museum are flawed and the car park is open for employees only, so you must run twenty minutes from the Tourist Office on foot or take a taxi. The signs of the way the Museum is abysmal. Without Google maps, one finds it hard. There's still potential for improvement.
