Rottweil was founded by the Romans in 73 AD as Arae Flaviae and became a municipium, with traces of human settlement going back to 2000 BC. The museum exhibits archaelogical finds from excavations of the Roman city.

All exhibits are in German, although the objects can be appreciated without needing to read. Photos without flash are permitted.
