The museum provides great context to the Roman occupation of Britain. We bought the combined ticket with Vindolanda which worked well. Would recommend visiting the museum first. Good combination of films and artefacts - very insightful experience.

Really enjoyed the museum. I think the stories told, illustrated by replicas of Roman military outfits and artifacts, were interesting for young and old. Very informative about the Roman history in the area and the UK, and the films gave some nice and sometimes funny...More

The museum is so full of facts, artefacts, stories and history. The use of multimedia to explain the military structure and might of the Romans is exceptional. You don't need to be interested in military history to enjoy this attraction just an inquisitive mind.

I drove a party of 16 people to this museum who were really looking forward to their visit. They were not disappointed. This is a fascinating Museum and tells the story very well. A good place to start a visit following the Romans in Britain...More

We arrived from the bus to start a walk along Hadrian's Wall, thinking we'd get a coffee, use the loos, and decide whether we had time to look around the museum - but we found that the cafe and loos were both out of bounds...More

Well worth a visit. The 3D film is very good and the exhibits give a clear understanding of Britain during Roman occupation.

Walking around what was the Roman Fort, it was amazing to see so much of the structure intact. It was easy to visualize what the fort looked like almost 2000 years ago. Do not misunderstand, the fortifications that are left are perhaps between 2 to...More

If you visit vindolanda then you must visit this place, it adds all bits together. It makes a great Roman day. It also makes you realise how advanced the romans were, and all their skills they used.

Great museum but not as big as Vindolanda, although they do show a 3D film which was very interesting. Unfortunately, I had my 9 month old daughter with me who doesn’t like the dark. So had to watch from the entrance to the cinema room....More

I absolutely loved this wonderful museum. So much to see and so much information, especially the Roman Centurion talking directly at you in complete character (a filmed actor) but an extremely effective way of showing you the life of a Roman soldier on the Wall....More

Hi, the museum is indoors and very good, I believe that only assistance dogs only are allowed inside. Hope this helps.

Yes, although rather small so could be crowded at peak times.

Currently the museum does not have a roman costume area, however we are looking into this as an option during the Hadrians Cavalry exhibition this summer.
