This is in the largest Norman castle in Europe - bigger even than the Tower of London. It is built on the site of a Roman temple to Claudius which was besieged by Boedica. Yet the exhibits are laughable and boring and there is no sense of the building's extraordinary history.
The museum will be closed in 2013 for repairs and a total refurbishment and rethink of the museum exhibits. I just hope they get it right this time.
