  • Unlike the previous opinion, there is some audio guides in french and they work very well! (plus they are included in the price!). The Museum is beautiful, clear and essential to do, common history has the France... only downside the legends of all the articles are in German (not d English either)

  • The most "modern" pieces in the collection are church artworks from the middle ages - tapestries, carvings, and statues from the 1300s. A cache of over 2600 gold coins dating from AD 63 - AD 196 unear...  more »
  • I was there in the Nero exhibition and ran then by the permanent exhibition. It was almost a little bit too much, what is meant but by no means negative. Trier is a center of the ancient world and is rightly appreciated in this Museum and extensively rebuilt. For a day trip, it's worth in any case.

  • 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.
