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.
After your visit to Verulamium Museum you can explore remains of the Roman town in Verulamium Park. Directly outside the museum you can visit the Roman Hypocaust, and if you venture a little further, you can see visit the Roman Theatre and see the Roman city walls too.
Today, Verulamium Park boasts a lovely lake, plenty of wildlife, and children's play areas.
