Spent nearly two hours here with a 5 and 8 year old. Good worksheets of differing levels to keep them amused. Lots of exhibits that they can touch, including the mosaics and a coffin lid. Real skeletons, weapons and coins kept their attention too. Dressing up props, make your own mosaic, coin rubbing. A great morning. Bought joint ticket to... More

Was a nice day out, educational and interesting just not the best museum I've visited. This one is more for the locals I think.

This newish, award winning Museum is full of treasures and wonders of times past here in St Albans. Worth every penny of the modest entrance fee. Coupled with the nearby amphitheatre and park with Villa and mosaic in situe it is a fascinating insight into Roman life in Britain.

This is just a single story, in 4 or 5 tiny rooms. Whats on show is interesting, but very limited. Not worth the money really. Quite disappointed at the size.

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

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
