Understanding history: the Romano-Germanic Museum

The Romano-Germanic Museum gives a vivid impression of how Cologne became a city under Roman law and the capital of the imperial province of Lower Germania.

Opened in 1974, the museum was built over the Roman villa discovered here in 1941, preserving its famous Dionysos mosaic, and on the site of the medieval Kaiserpfalz. The museum is a research centre, an archaeological archive for the city and a public collection all in one. Sensational presentation concepts make the Romano-Germanic Museum one of the most visited museums in Germany.
