A nice museum with permanent exhibitions and changing exhibitions. Exhibits of the history and culture of Trier . Now running a very special exhibition about Karl Marx life and the history of the 19 century. Very recommended. Admission 9 Euros.

Not a must, but still gives a good overview of ancient Trier. Due to the ongoing Nero exhibition I cant't tell much about what's normally shown.

Excellent museum very close to the Porta Niagra. Excellent Nero exhibition was on while I was there. Very well laid out and definitely worth a visit. I just wish I'd taken the audio guide, which I will next time.
