Things to touch and try out!
You can inform yourselves about the life of the legionaries on the Lippe as well as even slipping into the role of a Roman. You can make your way through the exhibition with the heavy marching baggage of a soldier or try to scatch words into the wax of a tablet with a stylus.
A reconstructed leather tent – once accommodation for six to eight legionaries - has a surprise in store: a news video from the year 4 AD provides news of the “latest” events in Rome and Germania.
An audio programme focuses on the legionaries' money problems 2000 years ago and tackles the problem of bribery. All in a lighthearted fashion.
Don't worry: you don't have to know any Latin to visit this museum. All the original texts are translated; all the finds are explained. The exhibits provide an impressive survey of almost every area of the legionaries' everyday lives. In connection with images, texts and models, the objects provide a lively picture of the time.
