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

We visited on a wet Monday morning in November, expecting there to be few visitors. Wrong! We found two coachloads of small and extremely noisy children inside. There are many very interesting exhibits to see but sadly we couldn't hear any of the audio descriptions owing to the loud infants, so we gave up and left. I hope they all... More

If you are interested in Roman history, this is the museum for you. This must be one of the most well laid out local museums in the country. It has a wealth of locally discovered artifacts which have been beautifully displayed in this upgraded museum. The design is both sensitive to the area and content of the museum. The displays...

This museum is the perfect place to go to get an insight into the Romans and the history of Verulamium. All the staff are incredibly knowledgeable and passionate - well worth a visit when visiting St. Albans, especially if you have primary age children!

Small museum but interesting to learn about the Roman past of St Albans. Perfect lead in to a walk up to the cathedral through the park past the old roman wall.

Visit this small local musemn and understand the history of the area. Veralamium is on Watling Street a busy north/south Roman road. A visit will also show you were to look in the park for hypercourses, walls, amphitheatre and the ruts of chariots entering the Roman city.
