This museum is truly amazing. It is a kind of archaeology meets space-age display. The interactive technology set in the excavated ruins under The Cloth Hall is a mind-boggling combination that just has to be experienced. Awesome!

A museum underground. This underground market was part of an archaeological dig 10 years ago. It is great for children & adults alike. Easily passes an hour or two. The entrance isn't easy to find, it is on the outside of the cloth market opposite St Marys Basilica. Tickets are purchased from the info desk around the other side of... More

We came two years ago as a couple and I wrote a review. Brilliant museum but the staff are grumpy. Came with friends today. Brilliant museum but the staff are just as grumpy as they were two years ago. Some one should sort them out!!

This tour is great, very interesting, on the day we visited there was a lot of school kids which is fine, but the very loud teacher explaining everything to the kids was very annoying and off putting, Great pictures and films about how the site was excavated, well worth a visit

We had seen great reviews of this museum.... we did not enjoy it. We enjoy learning about the past and usually love museums but we found this one incredibly boring.

This was a big surprise when we visited as we were not sure what to expect. It is very interesting and the displays are good and lifelike. It really gives you a good ideas of life all those years ago and is well worth a visit.

We were able to visit and escape the rain. The museum is underground which my kids thought was really cool. My two children and I visited in March and really enjoyed the museum. There are a lot of displays. My children ages 12 and 5 enjoyed this activity. When we went on a weekday, it was not crowded. The entry... More

Due to the snow in April, we decided to make the most of it by visiting this underground museum exploring the area under the main square. Due to the weather and the fact this attraction is free on Tuesdays (though it's closed on one Tuesday a month) it gets quite busy and so timed tickets are necessary. I would advise... More

located beneath the main square. The entry point is on the side of the cloth hall all at one end. Not a big fan of museums as I tend to get bored pretty quickly. I mean how many coins can you look at, however this place is different. it is well laid out and everything was well explained. You can... More

Very well built museum recreating the old market/down just under the old market square. The settings are recreated with care and it's definitely an escape from the surface crowd.
