The Rheinisches Landesmuseum is the archaeological museum in Trier, Germany. It is one of the most important archaeological museums in the country and documents 200,000 years of history. Exhibits show the cultural development of this region starting with prehistoric times until the end of the 18th century. There are around 4,500 objects on display, including the largest mosaic collection north of the Alps. Visitors can also see vivid scenes of daily life on the huge stone burial monuments from Neumagen. The world's largest Roman gold coin collection with over 2,600 gold coins can be found here as well.
The museum has an impressive permanent collection as well as space for temporary exhibitions. Free audio guides are available, and twice a day visitors can experience “In the Realm of Shadows,” a theater production among the Roman burial monuments. The museum is also an important research facility, and almost everything on display here was excavated by the museum itself.
The Rheinisches Landesmuseum is located at Willy- Brandt- Platz 3. Opening hours are Tuesday through Sunday 10am to 5pm. Admission is 6 euros.
