Excellent quality museum about the history of St Albans. Good mix of interactive displays and fun yet informative pieces. When I visited there was a "guide" dressed as a Roman soldier who was giving lots of info to a group of kids & adults, I didn't hear it all but it was about 45 minutes and a great way to... More

For me this is the type of museum that you either visit briefly, look over the beautiful mosaics and artifacts of Roman life in Verulamium, the settlement that became modern St. Albans, spend maybe an hour, and go on to your next stop, OR you settle in for hours and try to read every explanatory plaque and examine every pottery...

I really enjoyed this museum. It was interesting and educational for me. The interactive displays were engaging as well. I went to the park as well - great place to sit for a bit and read.

For people who haven't been to this museum before its a great visit. However I have been a couple of times as I am a local and nothing has changed for about 20 years. They should try and mix it up abit and hold event days to attract more visits but they don't seem to ever do anything like that.... More

The museum was well planned and designed, with something for all levels of knowledge and interest. I was most impressed. But I wish it would open on Sunday mornings which is just when locals and day-trippers have the time and inclination to visit.

Romano British civilisation and urban life (and death) of nearly 2000 years ago is vividly recreated as you stroll through this gem of a museum. There are plenty of stunning artefacts, as you might expect in a museum, but also interactive displays, work-sheets and other activities for children to enjoy, e.g. build your own mosaic, coin rubbing and dressing up....

Visited St Albans on a sunny Sunday and visted this great little museum. The museum is on the ege of a lovely park where you could spend a whole day.

I can't say enough about this place. It walks you through various aspects of daily life in Verulamium from the first through third centuries with the help of hundreds of marvelous treasures and contemporary dioramas. Appealing for all ages--don't miss it!

We found this museum by chance while on a stop over for a meal heading for Heathrow airport. We passed the museum on the left while entering the Verulamium Park which is a large expanse of land which contains a children’s play area and a building on the far hill which covers the Hypocaust, a mosaic floor which is elevated...

Despite the financial pressures on local authorities it is heartening to see that they can still be at the forefront of presenting their unique local perspectives on our national history. In this case the Verulamium museum has an advantage in possessing some truly splendid artefacts. Their mosaics in particular are among the best you will find anywhere in the UK.... More
