Romano-Germanic Museum

The Romano-Germanic Museum of the City of Cologne, opened in 1974 to the south of the Cathedral above the structural remains of a Roman town villa, is the result of a merger of two municipal collections: the Roman, since 1935 Roman and Germanic Department of the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum and the Prehistoric Museum, which has been called the Museum of Pre- and Early History since 1926.

The museum guards the archaeological heritage of the town and the surrounding area. Finds from prehistory to the early Middle Ages show the development and importance of Cologne through the centuries. In addition to providing an insight into the life of the Roman city, the museum presents the world's largest collection of Roman glass.
