The Corinium Museum is located at the heart of Cirencester the 'Capital of the Cotswolds'. Its principal collection consists of the highly significant finds from the Roman town of Corinium. However the museum today is much more than that, taking the visitor on a journey through time and charting the development of the Cotswolds from its prehistoric landscape to the modern day. The light and modern galleries offer the visitor an exceptional interactive experience. The museum is renowned for its learning provision, with an education centre and temporary exhibition space that ensure a vibrant, changing programme of events and activities for everyone to enjoy.

Whilst Roman museums are not my number one priority this one was well laid out, followed a chronological pattern and occupied 2 hours quite interestingly. As there is no audio guide available the guide book at £4.95 is very useful.

The museum is in the centre of the beautiful large Cotswold town of Cirencester. The museum is very interesting and informative with the exhibits presented in a modern style. Not at all boring. Helpful and well informed staff especially the lady at the ticket desk.

After visiting a number of "recent times" exhibitions recently, it was nice to visit somewhere that felt found & curated rather than overwhelming with information. The commentary was just the right length & the team have worked hard to make the exhibitions interactive for children...More

This museum tells the story of the Romans in Cirencester and area. It's well laid out with a mix of interactive displays and presentations about the artefacts. The mosaic floors and room layout are particularly good.

What an excellent museum this is for lovers of history, especially the Roman period. Superb displays and recreations really tell the story of Roman Corinium. Other periods are covered too but not in as much detail. The whole museum makes for a great day out...More
