Veralamium Museum Museums
Verulamium Museum is on the site of one of the major cities in Roman Britain, now an attractive park. Inside there are
- recreated Roman rooms
- hands-on Discovery Areas
- video presentations
- touch screen databases
- some of the finest Roman mosaics and wall plasters outside the Mediterranean
Verulamium museum is invaded every second weekend in the month by Roman soldiers who demonstrate the tactics and equipment of the Roman Imperial Army. See our diary for further details of this and many other activities.
The Museum has an attractive shop selling high quality souvenirs and books with affordable pocket money items for children.
A short walk from the museum is the site of one of the few true Roman theatres in Britain. It has banked seating facing the stage, with a re-erected stage column. The Theatre was built around AD 130. The site is in private ownership.
The museum is set in 100 acres of parkland. A mobile phone tour of the park is currently being developed. There are many amenities in the park including children's playground, children's splash pool (summer only), tea shop, lake with wildlife, tennis and crazy golf.
