Went here as part of the £6.50 deal for the museum, the amphitheatre and the mosaic. Loads of kids at first but they soon disappeared and we had the whole place to our self. So much to see and learn. And the staff are great too. Educated and friendly.

The museum was a stop off as part of a day out and definitely worth the visit. It's only £5 per adult for entry and really interesting with a lot of artefacts on display. I was especially impressed with the staff. Unprompted the lady in reception checked when a school trip was due to come around in case we didn't... More

This museum is amazing, it shows St Albans through the roman years with numerous exhibits including complete mosaic floors, videos and interactive features. The museum puts on shows to bring the age to life for young visitors but if you are visiting with children the exit is straight into the gift shop (not unusual).

I have promised to visit this museum for about 20 years and have either not got around to it or looked at the prices on the door (£5.00 per Adult) and thought "what on earth can this town offer that is worth that much". Having finally taken the bull by the horns I was entranced and amazed. What sort of... More

Modern setting for Roman objects. Displays are good with some hands on avtivities for youngsters and older visitors too. Not too big to put youngsters off. I found amphitheatre disappointing as my expectations were too great. Park nearby pleasant outdoor ending or beginning to the visit.

This is a terrific museum, the exhibits being beautifully displayed with just enough explanation. As is common in other museums, the child is king: noisy youngsters run around shouting at parents and friends, spoiling the atmosphere for the rest of the visitors. It is the parents' fault of course (my children were asked to respect others' space) but it is... More

If you visit the Verulamium Park, you must visit this museum. Full of facts about St Albans in Roman Times.

Not so big as it used to be never the less there was still plenty to see, do and learn, and also was fun trying make our own mosaic patters from the mosaic sections. Spending time here 1-2 hours.
