Very interesting museum, pity it hasn’t enough funding to actually keep excavating and exploring the remains, would be nice to see a building or two exposed

A most enjoyable visit. Excellent displays with the added benefit of audio- visual presentations. Adequate parking and good toilet facilities. Well worth the entrance fee of £4 per adult.

An excellent experience with many Roman artefacts especially the collection of Roman Alter Stones. My 8 year old grandson was really thrilled with the visit

If history interests you then this place is really worth a visit for the archaeological values it holds, although not a huge museum, its definietly holds some little pieces of history!
