I didn't realise there was more than just bathing going on in Roman baths. The grounds outside are just as interesting as the displays inside!

As an international visitor with no idea what the Jewry Wall was, the museum was a little bit of a let down. The museum looks a little outdated and focuses more at archaeology generally and other artefacts. It's still interesting and has some great historical...More

A quick visit to this museum. Interesting and informative. Lots of hands on things to do to keep children interested and being able to learn through this.
