I’ve wanted to see this place since watching the ‘Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day’ TV programme.
To see how a Roman house was built and then be able to walk around it was a great treat. Nice that they have added furniture of the period too.
Although the ruins were impressive and the recorded guide and the guide book is really excellent, the museum is small. However it gets a lot of information over. I don’t think I would have enjoyed it so much without the newly built Roman Villa next door. We were very lucky with the weather and it might not be so good standing the pouring rain listening to the guide. £5 which included the audio guide and free parking seemed excellent value to me.
And I have to agree with the comment about Leicester Roman baths and museum being better and free, but don’t forget the people of Leicester pay for that with their Council Tax!
