Reconstruction of the museum from 2016 to 2018 means you will not see very much. The outside park walk for 2.50€ per person takes 30 min. I suggest you wait until it's rebuilt.

The museum is closed till 2018 but still a nice walk checking out the roman ruins. As you walk through the cemetery you think of all the roman ruins just buried underneath you.

The Limes Museum provides a good overview of the Roman Limes defensive system. Though not chock-a-block filled with relics, there are a good number of period items on display. Pictures taken from Trajan's Column in Rome are used to excellent effect to explain a Roman...More
