It doesn't cost a fortune here £11 for the two of us adults. It has lots of interesting information but some of it is really hard to read due to the red lettering on the parchment.

We got a discount here because we’d bought a bus/boat ticket - every little helps ! Excellent history about the Romans - well set out & lots to see. A school party was due in - I’m sure all kids would enjoy this.

Really interesting little museum with plenty to see considering it's size. Extremely popular. You can pay to go on a march with a Roman soldier where you get to listen to the experiences and be instructed on how to use your sword.

Tucked away but well worth a quick visit if you like history. We went and initially were the only people in there and had plenty of time to look round.

Not the largest or most exciting museum you will ever visit, but nicely laid out with some interesting exhibits, particularly to see the stratification of the archaeology in the city. Explains some of the other things you see in the city. More for kids than...More

Many of the exhibits are reproductions, and the whole place is a bit "populist/touristic". There is a fee to go in. You can see some excavations, but there is not a lot to see. A few things that might appeal to children. The Grosvenor Museum...More

This museum is especially good for children as there are a lot of things they can touch and move, getting their hands dirty. For adults the experience is perhaps not so exciting but it still illustrates the Roman way of life and the history of...More

As per the previous comment - it doesn't spring to mind that the venue could accommodate your situation but do give them a call. Enjoy your stay.
