Attraction Information

  • Museums and Art Galleries icon Museums and Art Galleries

Suitable for ages: Babies and Toddlers (0-3), Young Children (4-8) and Older Children (9-12)

Venue type: Indoor

At Verulamium Museum you can study some of the finest Roman mosaics and wall plasters outside the Mediterranean and explore recreated Roman rooms, watch educational video presentations and use the touch screen databases to test and expand your knowledge.

There is a hands-on discovery area too for sensory learning and to add a bit more interest for kids who don't want to just look. It's much easier for them to remember something they've had in their own hands!

Plus, every second weekend in the month at Verulamium Museum, a Roman soldier in full uniform will talk about and demonstrate the tactics and equipment of the Roman Imperial Army! Talks start at 14:30 on Saturdays and 15:00 on Sundays and are well worth planning around!

There's full wheelchair and pushchair access to all areas of Verulamium Museum, including a lift to accessible toilets.

In the grounds you'll find a compact wildlife garden laid out to tempt and nourish a wide range of animals and plants. There is a small children's trail around the garden for your small folk to follow too.

For your educational fix the fascinating hypocaust and mosaic floor are in a new building in the park by the side of the museum, showcasing one of the country's first heating systems. This is just across Verulamium Park where there's also a small adventure playground: hurrah!

There's no cafe or bathroom facilities to be found in the museum but there is one locally in nearby Verulamium park.
