Hidden gem. Great for children and adults alike. Lots of artefacts and Roman historical info. Educational and relevant for different age groups which is hard to achieve.

Excellent place to visit. They have a huge collection of Roman artifact. Great place to take children as they have a special area for the children to learn about the Roman's of Maryport.

Enjoyed this museum on a wet and windy December Saturday. Interesting display of materials found in adjacent field. Tower available for looking at field where the fort was. Would love to see a dig here. It looked interesting too.
