Two walls with wall painting, a pottery kiln, clay hollowware and other objects now in the Neue Residenz and discovered in excavations give visitors an impression of the high-quality accoutrements in Roman houses in Iuvavum-Salzburg almost two millennia ago.

In addition, the museum has on show in alternating sequence 24 richly detailed views from all over the world, created by his son Hubert.
