The museum is amazing, the outdoors area is fantastic, the viewing platform offers sensational views. The cafe service is limited but they go above and beyond to accommodate your needs - do not be afraid to ask for an item which isn't on the menu (within reason!).

One of Wallsend's most interesting attractions, definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. This is the start of the roman empire here on our doorstep!

Friendly staff welcomed us to a small museum, a bit of the wall and the outline of the old fort. If it had not been at the end of our long walk along Hadrian's Wall and there was the promise of our final Hadrian's wall passport stamp, I would give Segundum a miss. We loved the Viewing tower and the... More

It was a cold day in October when I visited this attraction for the second time in 15 years! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Having been to Pompeii in the summer it sparked an interest in revisiting our local equivalent... Segedunum (Wallsend). The cold weather meant I stayed mainly within the indoor exhibits which were were well presented... More

We visited Segedunum as part of a tour of the most interesting portions of Hadrian's Wall from our home in Canada. This seemed an obvious place to start since it was the eastern end of the Wall. The attraction of this site lies not in the Roman remains themselves (which are not actually that impressive) but in its presentation. The... More

This is the obvious place to start or finish the Hadrian's Wall walk. The information is well presented, child friendly and informative. The grounds and views are very good. The person who has an interest in Roman history in Britain will enjoy it as much as someone who is only just beginning to understand this history. The day I was... More

Romantic Roman ruins... from my roots the foundations beneath my families home... a lady was found buried with treasure... and my memory of the ships in dock being built is held forever.

Good views of Wallsend, traditional northern food at the cafe and lovely mock roman house. A very interactive museum, maybe better for younger children but overall a good afternoon out.

We started our walk along Hadrian's Wall at Segedunum and found the museum quite interesting, but not as many artifacts as I thought there would have been given that we are right on the site of the fort. The excavation with signage was wonderfully detailed.

The museum here is in the canteen that used to be used by Swan Hunter Shipbuilders so that makes the visit more interesting as the site of Swan Hunter is still largely derelict and unused which is very sad.There are good views of the river and the museum not only explained the Roman site but how the area prospered through...
