Fascinating museum

Definitely well worth a visit. There is a charge to get in, but worth it. Everything well set out and well explained. The mosaics are beautiful.

I have been here a few times, and since its refit, it is really well laid out and bright. and caters for both for the casual visitor and for someone looking in greater depth. I recently went with a 5 and a 7 year old, and they had a great time. There is stuff for them to play with, dress... More

This museum is full of interesting and informative artefacts and features. We really enjoyed our visit and felt the price charged was reasonable, especially as you can buy a combined ticket that enables you to see the Roman theatre (very close by) as well. We also visited the mosaic which is free to view and is in the nearby park.... More

The price was reasonable and I thought the exhibits where interesting, especially for kids. They have some marvellous quality mosaics there. I particularly liked the audio where they bring to life one of the characters in a lead encased coffin. Very interesting. I spent about 2 hours there which was about right.

Museum looks small, but is packed with interesting artefacts, clearly presented, with particularly impressive mosaics.

A wonderful place to take kids and spend a rainy afternoon. Interesting history and wonderful artefacts. I was amazed to find all of this in the middle of St albans. Situated in the middle of a large park which is lovely to walk around

I was taking my father here for a visit as he'd always wanted to go. We drove around for 15 minutes looking for a car parking space to no avail. The museum seems to share the parking with the park which seemed to he heaving with mothers and young children. There were no obvious signs that alternatives were available. After... More

It was great coming back. Though found that having somewhat unruly school kids there made the trip a bit of a shame. My brother and I didn't feel able to enjoy the tour properly because of the large amount of kids there, based on the size of the museum rooms. Maybe the schools should send more staff with them!
