The new LVR-RömerMuseum in the Archaeological Park is now open. Until its opening in August 2008, the museum team had plenty to do coordinating the installation of the exhibition.

The archaeologist Dr. Charlotte Schreiter has been head of the LVR Roman Museum since 2012. She wants to raise the profile of the LVR Roman Museum with upcoming exhibitions, and to expand cooperation with other museums and research institutions.
Thousands of finds are revealed every year by the excavations in the Roman city. Many so-called special finds are restored immediately.
At the APX Petra Becker makes sure the finds are professionally treated. She established the Restoration department in 1995. Since 2012 she has been supported by Dirk Sander, the second APX restorer.

All APX guides are well trained part-timers who have learned how to best pass on their knowledge to different visitor groups.
The Guided Tours provide a good overview of the Roman city and Roman life. Guided tours on special subjects can be arranged on request.
Guided tours are also available in English, French, Dutch and Hungarian. Hearing impaired visitors can ask to be accompanied by a sign language interpreter.
