This is a hidden little gem right by Porta Nigra that should not be missed. Great for rainy days or super hot days in Trier. It is very cheap but has some rather unique pieces of WWI and WWII history as well as art work...More

The museum gave a very good overview of the history of the area from the romans though. I found the layout of the museum confusing and whilst there were some signs showing the route they were unclear to me. So I had a rather mixed...More

There is a fair bit here, the early parts are the usual natural history but then it gets into the roman period and has a lot of remnants from the period. There's also the gold hoard, a model of 4th century Trier and a lot...More

The Rheinisches Landesmuseum has several floors of antiquities, many of which have been found right in the area. They do an excellent job with the models that let you see what the cities and buildings may have looked like once. There are many Roman artifacts,...More

Well worth visiting. Should visit this first if you can, so as to understand the history of Trier and the Rhineland. Lots of interesting artifacts, well presented, and in a flow that is easy to follow. An audio guide is also available with further explanations.

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...More

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...More

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...More
