  • Recently visited this museum with the family including our 13 year old daughter. We were all very impressed! The exhibits were first class and were showcased in a clean and modern environment. Information and exhibit use and time lines were both informative and easy to understand. The museum is spilt into areas and each area flows well into another. There are interactive features in each area and these helped to enhance understanding and made the exhibits more relevant to younger visitors. We were particularly impressed with the area showing Roman tombstones. The staff were all friendly, knowledgeable and clearly had a passion for their work. I felt this museum easily rivals many of the more famous ones. We shall definitely be returning soon.
  • Lots of very interesting exhibits and well laid out. The large mosaics are very impressive. Very reasonable entry fee.
  • Great couple of hours with the grandchildren,would have been better without the construction noise because of my grandsons hearing aids but we understand it's got to be done sometime. And still managed to have a good time, most of it spent playing Tabula
  • Excellent place to learn of the early history of the area. Exhibits and information were informative, interesting and easy to digest. Bright, well lit museum with plenty of interactive displays. Highlight was being able to stand on an authentic floor mosaic.
  • Very interesting. A good place to bring kids. Gift shop is slightly weak but overall a good experience!
