Our visit to this excellent museum was completely ruined by the noisy, unruly behaviour of the THREE school parties who took over the museum. We could neither see nor hear the various viseo displays. Children shouted and ran about. A few, but by no means all, teachers tried to control their charges but there were just too many for this... More

This is a well-organized and interesting museum featuring Celtic and Roman artifacts. It's not too big or too small, it is just right for everyone in the family. Most of the artifacts were found in the vicinity of modern-day St. Albans, which was formerly the Roman city of Verulamium. The highlights include beautiful and well-preserved floor mosaics and skeletons. This... More

Romans are famous for their efficiency, what a great pity that this museum is managed by numpties who are yet to enter the 21st century. It is impossible to find out when the place is open over the Christmas & New Year period. Unhelpfully their website just states ` Christmas & New Year Opening Times - To be confirmed `.... More

There's plenty to fascinate and engage here. Without pomposity you are shown how life was during the Roman heyday in Britain at Verulamium, one of the most important cities in the country at the time.

Modern, excellent layout, light, bright and airy. Informative and relevant. Highly recommended.Worth the fifteen minute from the abbey.The theatre 100 metres away also worth a visit.

This well-maintained and large museum is a steal at 5 quid. Lots to do for adults and children alike; thousands of Roman artifacts

Tells the story of St Albans from Celtic Times to the end of Roman Britain, well worth a visit. The Museum is well laid and has some excellent mosaics and interior of a Roman house. There is also a televised area which tells the story of the foundation (just the right time length). Afterwards a small shop to browse and... More

An informative museum, well laid out, plenty of written information and items to view. Learned much about the area, the Roman influence, and how that information was gathered. Well worth a visit. Had hoped to see something on the Watling Street - not a criticism, simply a personal thing. Only real criticism would be the car park being fee paying... More

Reputedly one of the best Roman museums in the UK, and I wouldn't argue. Everything is very well presented and the story of the Romans in the area, and how they lived, is depicted very well. There were hoards of school-kids there when we went and that would normally, perhaps selfishly, detract from the experience. However, to watch how much... More
