We visited as a family because one of the children is studying the Romans. The Museum has lots of sections relating to different aspects of Roman life, from work, to leisure and religion, and the development of Verulamium- and the eventual move of the city up the hill to what is now St Albans. There are lots of artefacts, including... More

What a great museum. Not large but crammed with things. Very educational. Took my daughter and she had many things to get her thinking. Please note not strictly a part of the museum but be warned that the mosaic closes surprisingly early.

My daughter had to do a project on Roman life in St Albans and we discovered the museum by chance whilst researching on the internet. Rather than reading lots of uninspiring documents, we decided to go visit. We gathered a few school friends and off we went. Wow what a place! Roman artefacts, frescos, mosiacs, currency, tools, implements etc. The... More

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.
