The Museum of Everyday Life in Roman Britain
Verulamium was the third largest city of Roman Britain and the museum stands on the site of the Roman town. The museum holds archaeological collections from the Roman city of Verulamium and the medieval town of St Albans including mosaics, pottery, metalwork, glassware and bone.
Families are always welcome at our museum. Inside you will find: friendly and informative staff, recreated Roman rooms, hands-on discovery areas, video presentations, and of course some of the finest Roman mosaics and wall plasters outside the Mediterranean.
The Museum’s services include regular family activities (story time, crafts, mosaic making), a schools programme (workshops, tours, artefact handling), access to its library, a free object identification service, lectures, work experience placements and volunteering opportunities.
