If you're interested in the history of Roman Britain, a trip to the Verulamium Museum should be on your agenda. The current museum was built in 2005 and holds a great collection of Roman artifacts pulled from the surrounding area. The current city of St Albans grew next to, not on top of, the old Roman city of Verulanium, so... More

On a day out I decided at the last moment to visit this museum and what a great place it turned out to be. Although I knew somethings about the Romans I was unaware of the local tribe who lived here prior to there arrival. There is on show a wide range of artefacts and information about how they lived...

Take the time and walk through the museum and see the relics. Worth the time and cost. And it's right near the park so it's a pleasant walk

There is so much to see, and it's really well laid out and described! It really show-cases St Albans as a significant Roman centre.

This museum is on the edge of Verulamium Park and is the museum of the Roman Town. It has a very large collection of Roman artifacts and several mosaics. For children there is a dressing up area. You can spend hours in here, or less than an hour. Better still if you are a resident of St Albans you can... More

This museum is definitely worth visiting if you're nearby, or have an interest in Roman history! There's a vast collection of Roman artefacts, not just in glass cabinets but drawers-upon-drawers full, and although not all of them are labelled clearly, they are still fascinating to pore over for an hour or two. The genuine mosaics and wall paintings are very... More

St Albans is a great destination for day-trippers and Verulamium should be a stop on the tour. Set in the beautiful park that was once the site of the Roman city, this little museum is a gem. Chock-full of artefacts and information including incredible mosaics, coffins and skeletons. The entry fee is reasonable and there is a great gift shop.... More

A lovely museum, well spaced out with real Roman (rather than horrible multimedia) exhibits set in the same place as a Roman house with parts of the original floors and wall paintings. Absolutely fascinating, and only £2 entrance. Highly recommend.
