Are you a Roman?  



The Euregion Meuse-Rhine was one of the most romanised areas in the northwestern frontier of the Roman Empire. Tongeren was the capital of the Civitas Tungrorum and a lot of the Roman remains can still be seen. The Gallo-Roman Museum was awarded “European Museum of the Year” in 2011. The Gallo-Roman Museum spared neither effort nor money to make the permanent exhibition exciting for everybody. Educational films, maquettes and convincing synthetic figures bring those distant times back to life; marvel at more than 2,000 objects from the museum’s own collection.


The Thermenmuseum in Heerlen contains the remnants of a gigantic Roman bathhouse that is 2,500 m2 in size. This is the Netherlands' best preserved Roman building at 2000 years old. The exhibition gives a clear insight in the daily life of Roman citizens in a rural context. A guided tour led by curator Dr. Karen Jeneson will show you the complete history of this site.
