I went here on a school trip to help out. The talk was interesting in part of the museum but apart from that there wasn’t an awful lot to capture the children’s attention. More suitable for older children and adults

The extensive excavations of parts of the Roman bathhouse are undercover and well presented. Together with the rest of the Roman architecture and free to see we recommend a visit to Caerleon.

Interesting to learn about the history of the area - the Roman remains are well presented it was a pity there weren't a few more gift shops or tea rooms in the village.

Can’t believe the place is free. First class recreation of the Roman baths - sound and lighting. Interactive things for children to play with. Video production of a Roman using the baths etc.
