There are excellent Roman mosaic floors and interesting wall paintings (frescoes) but the display is tired and cluttered. Also has excavated remains of Roman baths. Well worth seeing. I enjoyed doing the jigsaws of the mosaics. It is also free!

we enjoyed our visit and our chat with the curator whose knowledge seemed exhaustive. Slightly put off by noisy school kids but they seemed to enjoy the activities

This place is a wealth of info and has a great collection of artefacts. It's obviously looking it's age and could do with some funding. Much like other small museums. Please visit and show your support. Sadly places like this are closing down far too...More

This museum has an impressive local archeological collection for a provincial municipal museum, mainly concerned with Leicester's Roman heritage. It is informative and has friendly and helpful staff. On the down side, the building itself is a post WWII monstrosity which perhaps represents the architectural...More

We had to go here to complete a project for university. It was interesting, although we didn't stay for long. Lots of information, and the staff were friendly enough.

I didn't know there existed such sites still exposed to the elements in the heart of a city! Samples of artifacts were in the museum and the mosaics were lovely.

Hi Pedro, thanks for the query. There's a few books at the museum but the University of Leicester would be the best resource for research. Hopefully they can organise a guest access for their excellent library facilities... More
