The Museum is good and has some really interesting Roman frescoes, but what really impressed me was the current art exhibition, in association with the 200th anniversary of Marx's birth in Trier. The exhibition really exceeded my expectations, it featured art from a number of...More

The artwork and sculpture in this museum is astonishing. There are no cameras permitted, but there are lockers available. I mention that first because the rest is just fantastic. Religious icons wall fragments and paintings, sculptures, carvings are all so finely displayed in a very...More

The most important pieces in the museum are the restored ceiling frescoes from the imperial palace. Amazing restoration of the small preserved parts. A really unique images of members of imperial family and other persons. Incredible! Unfortunately it's not permitted to take photos.

Small museum with unusual late Roman ceiling painting painstakingly restored, Fascinating puzzle of original fragments completed to give the full idea.

We didn't get a chance to see much of the regular museum since we spent so much time in the Nero Exhibit (which had been divided into 3 separate museums). This museum concentrated on Nero and the Christians. The audio guide was excellent as the...More
