This museum goes from prehistory of the Trier area all the way to "recent" history. It was amazing to see Celtic artifacts, Roman artifacts and stone tools all in the same place and from the same area. I loved this museum and Trier in general. Definitely visit the area if you enjoy history!

80% of it was in Deutsch only, understandable for being in Deutschland but would be nice if they added English in a museum so you actually know what you're looking at. Kind of kills the whole museum experience when you can't see the story behind things in the museum, so for me I felt like it was a waste of €8, if you speak Deutsch it would be fine but of you aren't very good with German or don't speak it at all, either go with someone who can explain things or pass over this one.

Attention, no English description through the whole museum. One of the best museums I've been. I did not see exhibition belonged to other countries, and the route is designed well. Good for knowing things about German in Rom time.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
