Showcases the wonderful history of Cirencester and peopled by friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff more »
We only had an hour but I enjoyed learning about Roman Cirencester and about the periods that followed. It’s a well laid out, bright, and interactive little museum. A great price at £6 for an adult... more »
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.
