Corinium Museum Reviews
This museum is a must if you are interested in the history of Cirencester, which was the second largest Roman settlement in Britain. Wonderful mosaics, jewelry, stonework. And many hands-on exhibits..... more »
The museum is amazing with world class mosiac floors of Roman dwellings. They are laid out to give perfect views and so well lit. And the result? We were the only folk there! It should be heaving... 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.
