Excellent mosaics and wall plaster well displayed in 'room settings, information clear and many wonderful and some unique exhibits. Only spotted the small notice which informed us that we had already missed the time to look at the Hypocaust as it shuts well before the museum. Shame the museum not open till 2 p.m. on Sunday

The Verulamium Museum is a compact but fascinating building, standing on the edges of the extensive Verulamium Park (under which the remains of the Roman city still lie) and tells the story of everyday life in Roman Britain, together with the history of the town from the time of the first Roman settlement until the Army departed in 410.

This is a very pleasant museum, not too big so if you have children they should not get bored, it covers St Albans and its surrounding villages from Roman times to Victorian and the 20s etc, many nice artefacts, including Egyptian mummies and history of the Pyramids. Worth an hour or twos visit.

I'm not much of a museum person but this place was pretty cool. There's a lot of stuff about Roman England and some really beautiful original mosaics displayed within the museum.

This is a wonderful Roman Museum much of that time is brought to life. You have so many artefact , mosaics and beautiful jewellery. It really brings to life what is must have been like living in Verulamium during the Roman occupation. Really to be recommended. If you are lucky you might even find a Roman Soldier there at the...

A good museum for all ages. Plenty to teach children about everyday life in Roman times and also enough for adults with more knowledge. Mosaics are interesting and the finds from St Albans show what an important place it was. It has an entry fee for visitors who are not locals. Some interesting books to purchase for all ages.

I love a good museum and this is a good one. A lovely welcome from the front desk on arrival, full of tips and info to make our visit marvellous. So much to see in a small space, well displayed and labelled. I last visited here about a million years ago when I was a child. I'm still excited about... More

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.
