This museum is closed until at least sometime in 2018, as it is moving to a new location. Don't make my mistake and try to visit. I was very sorry to miss it, as this was my one day in Mainz and I'm very interested...More

The museum is located on the banks of the Rhine in the castle of the Elector. It is very interesting. The idea of its foundation was quite good - Mainz has the very rich history, including even during Roman epoch. In principle, something preserved here...More

For a history passionate this museum is a must when in Mainz but don't make the mistake of thinking that's only for history readers. You have a wide array of relics from Roman times which you will surely enjoy seeing and reading about.

Lots of fine artefacts of interest to those with more than a casual interest in the classic Roman era. To attract a broader public a more modern display style is advised.

The museum is free of charge. I had difficulty because I know very little German so I was unable to read the exhibit descriptions. There were definitely interesting objects on display. This museum wouldn't be my first stop in Mainz but worth looking at if...More

Luckily this museum is free of charge. The items on show are interesting, but sadly enough the old building doesn’t lend itself to this kind of museum. Note also that there are a lot of facsimiles, but these are not indicated as such.

Not the best museum I have been to but worthwhile to have a walk through when you are visiting the area, no entry fee. Some Roman ruins, you can donate at departure.
