  • Incredible displays of early England. Loads of history about Cirencester (Corinium). I was amazed to find out here that this was a major Roman city, as important as London at the time. Small museum, but well worth it & not expensive.
  • Very informative about the local area. Lots of good displays. Limited for kids although some nice hands on items and a chance to dress up
  • Great information about Cirencester and the surrounding area history. Has some lovely finds. Great for children.
  • Brilliant museum. The new Anglo Saxon gallery is really well done.
  • Spectacular exhibits. Superb for families.
