  • Free entry museum that is worth a visit. Plenty of Roman exhibits to see. Tim Peake display very interesting too. Could be more interactive displays for kids to enjoy. Allow 1-2hrs to see everything.
  • It's a free museum. As it should be - it's a local museum and to be honest not well laid out or curated by the looks of things. I'm sure you could spend hours in there reading the minutiae on every single info placard but to be honest I got fairly bored. It was laid out in a confusing way and not clearly signposted, and there was no real coherency to the museum or exhibits as a whole. Tim Peake exhibition was good (though a lot of it was 'out of order') but better was the view of the cathedral from opposite.
  • Wonderful. The 'spotlighted' picture is of the Roman Bath House around which the museum was built. Full of terrific exhibits and very family friendly. Easy to find between the Cathedral and the Library. Great staff. Free - donations welcome.
  • Great place , always love history and seeing as its now free its a good place to just drop in and have a look.
  • Good exhibit of old Roman ruins. Would be good to have more Roman history included
