The museum of everyday life in Roman Britain
Built on the site of one of the largest Roman cities in Britain, Verulamium Museum is filled with ancient treasures and some of the finest mosaics outside of the Mediterranean.
Bring the entire family and explore the wonders of Roman life, immerse yourself in recreated Roman rooms and admire the craftsmanship of the intricate large-scale mosaics on display. You can also see recent discoveries such as the Sandridge Hoard, a collection of 159 Roman gold coins.
In addition to hands-on discovery areas for younger visitors, the museum also provides a selection of free activity sheets for children and dressing up clothes are available on weekends and school holidays.
Please note that joint tickets for Verulamium Museum and the Roman Theatre will not be available to buy online between 28 May and 21 August due to regular closures of the theatre for outdoor theatre performances. There may be times throughout this period when the theatre is open to the public but to avoid disappointment, we encourage you to check their website for more details and to buy a joint ticket in person either at the Roman Theatre or at our front desk.
