We took a family member round the museum, hypocaust and theatre, and she really loved the way the Roman way of life was presented. There is lots for children to do, and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Residents only have to pay to visit the theatre, as it is on private land. We spent all morning there, and... More

Really enjoyed our trip to this attraction, the museum is interesting and informative and not endless in size, jere are additional elements to your visit, should you wish, which are within walking distance. This includes a mosaic in situ across the park (which the museum is sited in) a Roman Theatre which is within walking range, and other Roman sites... More

Taken together with the Roman Theatre across the main road and the mosaic floor in the park, these exhibits are well worth a trip to St. Albans. There's plenty to fill a good couple of hours, there are several mosaics in the Museum as well as the big one in the Park and many artefacts exacavated from the sites around... More

Spent a few hours here and really enjoyed learning about Verulamium. Bought a combined ticket so visited the Roman Theatre the following day.

The car park is small and had no spaces, so we went out of the museum forecourt, turned left and went along Blue House Hill. At the roundabout we turned left and parked on the right by some houses. There is a crossing nearby, which leads onto a field which slopes down to the Verulamium Museum. A ticket buys Museum... More

Learn about the Roman past of St Albans, or Verlumlamium as the Romans called it. It was once Roman Britain's third largest town. There are many Roman artifices on display, including wonderful mosaics found in the in the town. Buy the dual entry ticket and see the Roman Theatre on the other side of the road.

My wife and I visited here on a Tuesday getting a £6.50 combined theatre and museum ticket. The museum alone is £5. We parked in the nearby car park which costs £1.50 for 3 hours. The museum is not very big but shows a good selection of large mosaics from the local area. The contents are arranged in categories such... More

We visited the Roman Theatre first and bought a combined ticket for there and the museum for £6.50 per person. We found the museum nicely laid out and enough information about items without being too wordy. We paid 5 times the amount to visit an exhibition on Sicily at the British Museum which did not have half of the amount... More

This little museum is great if you want to learn a bit more about the local history of St Albans and the Romans. The artefacts are really well displayed and in amazing condition giving you a real feel of Roman life. You can buy a joint ticket for £6.50 that gives you museum entry and entry to the Roman Ampitheatre... More

What a treat to take my five year old grandson to this fantastic little Museum. As a resident I took a utility bill and got free entrance. My daughter paid £5 for herself and £2.50 for Sebastian … the baby was free and luckily slept the whole time, giving us both the chance to enjoy watching Seb learning from the... More
