Top ways to experience Romermuseum and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

The Romans were so clever and you get a great look at everyday life in this museum. It really brings ancient Vindabona to life.

This museum was close to our hotel and we decided to visit on a rainy morning. Great informative museum. Quite small but every bit made to count. Learnt so much not only about the Romans in Vindobona but also about the Romans generally and their water and heating systems etc. Nicely presented and well worth a visit.

The museum is built above where below street level excavations took place. It is fairly small, but there are a number of floors. The excavations are in the basement, with other floors covering the finds from and history of the site, and of Roman Vienna.

The design and layout of the museum is very well done, informative and educational. My teenage daughter and I spent a couple of hours there and would recommend a visit.

LOCATION. Nearest station: Stephansplatz.

A six-minute walk from St. Stephen’s Cathedral, exit the cathedral, go north and take your second left. If you see a bunch of tourists shooting their phones to the sky, don’t panic – it’s probably the Anker Clock, a bizarre Art Nouveau copper piece featuring twelve historical figures moving through the hours. Fitted with a “clock face” that could riddle you till the next.

Walk past the clock for another twenty seconds.

HERITAGE. The museum is built on top of a legionary fortress, first to fifth century. Much of the establishment spreads over the streets around the area; what is shown here is only one of the houses within the fortress. Discovered 1948 during the building of a sewer.

Exhibitions go through what it’s like to live in Vindobona, the Roman settlement that is present-day Vienna. The settlement guards the Roman Empire’s northern border. It contains a mix of civilians both local and Roman as well as soldiers, a thriving population of 30000+ with trades and shops and leisure activities for the army.

Excavations reveal artifacts such as pots from other Celtic regions, giving us a hint of the scale of trading that has gone through the region.

Now go upstairs to see a CG recreation of the fortress.

Been to Rome a few times and love the rich history especially about the Roman Empire than ruled over most of the known world at the time and seeing this museum was too good an opportunity to pass up on.
It's a compact museum but concise ,beautifully organized, you learn about the Roman military camp known as Vindabona which would become Vienna, great artifacts skilfully displayed and very interesting indeed, price could be lower generally speaking but it's not prohibitive and I certainly enjoyed it.
Easy to locate on Hoher Markt, if your a Roman history buff most definitely well worth checking out.

Yes it's interesting enough, tiny museum, with some small ruins, the rest is just photos or write ups, large portion of which is only in German. After paying a whopping €7.00 that's just plain annoying. I expected more than an intro foyer, a kiddy playing area and not much to see second floor room. Personally, unless you are as obsessed by Ancient Rome as I am, or a scholar that wants to specifically see those small ruins, I would skip it as it's not even worth €2. Disappointing to say the least.

Located in the city center, though still quite empty - possible to visit without crazy crowds around. You can easily learn ancient history of Vienna, when it was yet the Roman camp of Vindobona. A lot of historical videos and information, various archeological excavations - almost everything both in English and German. Highly recommended, especially that on the first Sunday of the month the entrance is free.

Maybe because other museums in Vienna are better and I have visited bigger ones with paintings this one seemed pale in comparison.

It is small and has little exhibits... You can see that they are trying to make the museum more appealing but... I don't know.
If I had not visit it on 1st sunday of month when it was free, would probably rate lower...

Roman museum as a title promises much, but... not even single mosaic or smth

This is a small museum compared to others in Vienna but well worth a visit. There are three floors full of artefacts and information presented in German and English.

The entry fee for two senior citizens was10 Euros which was great value considering we spent well over an hour there.

The lowest floor, which is below ground level, is really interesting because it presents the ruins of the Roman fort and living accommodation where it originally stood. Elsewhere there are videos on Roman life and waterworks.

There are free lockers available, toilets and coat hooks. It seems to be popular with school parties but they were well behaved and due to the different floors it was easy to work around them.
