Owner description: Lying in magnificent countryside next to a sweeping section of Hadrian's Wall and based at the site of Carvoran Roman Fort, the Roman Army Museum is an authentic and dramatic tribute to Rome’s extraordinary military legacy. Step into the life of a Roman soldier and experience life on the front line of Emperor Hadrian’s formidable British frontier. Explored through reconstructions, objects excavated along Hadrian's Wall and the Vindolanda Trust’s inspiring interpretations of army life including the exclusive 3D Edge of Empire film, the museum pays unforgettable homage to Rome's military accomplishments in Britain.

This is a lovely museum, with lots of info and displays about Roman army life. There is a nice Roman coin collection, armour, a short film to watch showing a recruitment officer, and an excellent display about Hadrian. There is a superb 3D film 'Edge of Empire' showing how hard army life was then. It would have been nice to see more Roman artefacts, like the exhibits at Housesteads Roman Fort Museum though. Worth buying a joint ticket and visiting Vindolanda too.

Great insight into Roman Britain. This museum appeals to all ages and sets the scene beautifully for a trip to Vindolanda. Buy the joint ticket.

So much to see and do and not just for children. We liked how modern methods have been used to tell the story

This is a good museum if your kids are doing the Romans at school or you are yourself interested in Roman Britain.
