A glimpse into the past, into the Roman past of the city of Heerlen, that’s how we describe all the showcases that are now located in the Roman Quarter in the center of Heerlen. An initiative of the entrepreneurs in this area in cooperation with Roman history museum ‘Thermenmuseum’ and archaeological center ‘De Vondst’. Each display case focuses on a different object from Roman times. These are special archaeological finds from the region or exact replicas of utensils from the Roman period. Together, the display cases form a route through the area and past the shops and food establishments located here.

The Showcase Project is the result of a collaboration between the entrepreneurs, museums, archaeological center, tourist office and municipality of the city of Heerlen.
