The displays and reconstructions are full of information. But I was very disappointed with the customer service. The staff made little attempt to welcome us or or give any help. Not even toilet paper to hand! I have wanted to visit for many years . but this will be memorable for all the wrong reasons. Using the website to plan my visit was difficult, it assumed an amount of familiarity with the area, tourist Signage from the city outskirts was poor, and disability parking difficult to find. I didnt realise what a fascinating city St Alban's is, but it does not celebrate its features or market itself as a tourist destination. Such a pity. A

This is a useful location as the car park is a reasonable cost ( £ 1.70 for 3 hours) and after the museum you can walk through the park past the ponds to visit the Cathedral and then access the nearby shops / cafes etc. Cost of entry to the Verulamium Museum was £ 6 ( adult / midweek in the afternoon) which I did think was a little bit too much but then I'm more interested in art, architecture and medieval history onwards than Roman era artefacts / Roman ways of life which the museum does present well. Nethertheless this attraction is worth a visit and does contain some large stunning mosaics for the more arty people.

Took ages from 4 - 10 yrs . 7 yr old doing Romans in school . Felt it hadn’t changed since I took my children 30 years ago . Yes real mosaics excellent . Yes they all liked making one but could have been better done perhaps to take one home . Even for a fee . Perhaps models dressed up as Emperor and as a Roman soldier . All rather lack lustre . Bits of pottery doesn’t hold much for this age group . As usual more money needs to be spent to make it more interesting . We all completed work sheets but again some items in drawers which took some looking for .Boys looking for more bigger displays on soldiers and battles !! I know a Roman soldier comes every so often but not when we could come .

This museum is very interesting and contains lots of information and artefacts from St Albans in the roman times . Its free for locals and there's a good gift shop. For children, they also offer some activity sheets to complete as they go around the museum . It is very interesting and you can learn something new every time you visit. As well as this, it is also a chance to admire some beautiful roman mosaics.

this is a really interesting museum but it could be so much better. We all enjoyed ourselves and found various very interesting things to look at but we all came away thinking it was a bit dry and there wasn't enough information about what we were looking at.
