We visited this museum while on a holiday from our home in Canada. This is a really attractively laid-out museum with a difference.

This museum is accessible and beautifully laid out. The information is clear and the exhibits well kept. There is a wealth of information and many, many artifacts on display. The villa is beautifully re-created and the mosaics are exquisite. This museum is really well worth visiting. There are also many child-friendly activities to do there. A great place to spend...

Well worth a visit if you're interested in history. St Albans is an historic Roman Town the museum has many examples of roman remains. Well set out with easy parking.

Wouldn't go out of my way to visit, but I enjoyed my time there with abroad visitors. Short and sweet, and cheap. Beautiful mosaic collection and entertaining daily life items on display.

Have being going here since i was a kid at school and never tire of the place. It is informative, interesting and a good size for kids. The quizzes keep it fun and sometimes they dress up and have volunteer guides.

Our 10 year old son visited the Verulamium museum on a school trip and found it so interesting that he wanted to go back. We took him and his brother one weekend. The parking was a bit difficult as it was a warm day and the adjacent park was busy so the car park was full. The museum is quite... More

Whilst there is not much left of the ruins you can clearly see the size and perspective of the place as well as artist impressions of how it may have looked. The museum was a short walk away and was very interesting, some great exhibits on show... More
