This is quite a small museum, but it's jammed full of stuff and well worth your time. There are many photos of the sites and information boards about Trimontium and other local sites. Some of the really important discoveries, such as the cavalry parade helmets,...More

First things first: this Museum is NOT open on Sundays, so ignore the web pages that say it is. I was very lucky to be given a tour by the curator, a charming gentleman and a classicist, who went pout of his way to assist...More

Fantastic museum to visit and very cheap admission. This is the only Roman specific museum in the country. Despite its size the information and exhibits are amazing. Guided walks leave from the museum to Trimontium Roman fort site during the summer months. The museum is...More

This museum covers the most significant Roman site in Scotland. This museum is well worth the £2 entry, and probably worth so much more. Enthusiastic volunteers who are genuinely interested in Roman Scotland gave us a helpful overview of the museum and of the history...More
