Information

The Museum für Antike Schifffahrt is housed in an old engine lodge not far from the Roman Theater in Mainz Südstadt. There, visitors can get to know the variety of ancient vessels: simple boats and canoes, merchant ships, patrol boats and warships. Inscriptions on the gravestones of fleet soldiers trace their eventful lives. Visitors can learn a lot about everyday life in the Roman fleet from letters and documents.
