First impressions of the hugely interesting Verulamium Museum, located on the west side of Verulamium Park, give a hint of what is to come. The building itself is in the style of a Roman villa and its contents describe everyday life in Roman Britain. The museum is compact and can easily be navigated in an hour. But why rush when there is such an abundance of roman archaeology on show, most of which comes from the town of Verulamium itself. All the exhibits are accessible for children with touch screen information points for inquisitive fingers and audio visual displays to fire the imagination. At weekends there are often special events, talks, games and walks – details can be found on the Museum’s website.
Once you have enjoyed all the Museum has to offer, you can always pop into the Inn on the Park for a snack before continuing your explorations into all things Roman at the Hypocaust and Amphitheatre, both a short walk away. [Oct 08]
