  • Very interesting see a Roman house with underfloor heating in those time. Also gold coins, swords and tools.
  • Great depicting of everyday life in the Roman times in Kent
  • Nice museum! Especially we liked the archeological site integrated into the museum. Also, foe children there is a nice touch and try section at the end of the visit.
  • Great view inside history of Canterbury.
  • Small museum atmosphere, we were the only ones there so it was easy to read all the text. With a crowd, I imagine it would be a bit of a challenge. If you take the city walking tour, you get a discount on admission.
