    Very informative and well to imagine through the shown 3D film was life on Hadrian's wall. It is worthwhile to solve the Combi-ticket to a few kilometres further in Vinlandia visit even the excavations. You must do both in one day. Also a short walk along the wall is impressive.

    Good information. Interactive and new. We enjoyed a couple of hours here learning about the wall before walking a section of it. The film was good with great aerial views of the wall  more »

  • Disabled access throughout. It is quite a small museum but nicely done with some interesting exhibits. It took us at most an hour and would probably take most people less time to go round. Visited June 2016
  • This is a great place. Staff friendly and helpful whilst unobtrusive, welcoming space. Multi media without overdoing it; interesting and well presented. Doesn't overreach itself. Great wheelchair access. Recommended.
  • Absolutely loved it, really bright and interactive exhibits, completely engaging for children. Good wheelchair access and plenty of seating. The best decorated toilets I have ever seen too!
  • A fascinating look at the Roman history in the area. The 3D movie was very interesting and pro used some fantastic footage of what remains of Hadrian's Wall and a look at what it may have been like to be posted in the area.
  • Amazing Museum worth visiting for the 3D film alone!!! Very informative. Very friendly staff.
