This is our second visit and they now have a great museum and some great work has been done there, and they continue to dig. You can buy a double ticket to visit the Roman army museum, does save money a a great museum.

Fascinating items - so many shoes and so modern looking some of them! All in all a very good place to visit together with the Roman Army Museum 10 minutes away. Buy a joint ticket.

We visited this on a Saturday in November. The museum is easy to find. We loved the writing tablets which give unique insight in Roman life. Fascinating! Also liked the collection of shoes!
