Lonely Planet review
The extraordinary remains of five wooden ships of the Romans’ Rhine flotilla, used around AD 300 to thwart the Germanic tribes then threatening Roman settlements, are the centrepiece of the Museum of Ancient Seafaring, which was totally renovated in 2011. Also on display are two full-size replicas of Roman ships and a collection of scale-model ships (sure to please the kids). Signs are in English.
