Attraction details
Owner description: The Corinium Museum is located at the heart of Cirencester the 'Capital of the Cotswolds'. Its principal collection consists of the highly significant finds from the Roman town of Corinium. However the museum today is much more than that, taking the visitor on a journey through time and charting the development of the Cotswolds from its prehistoric landscape to the modern day. The light and modern galleries offer the visitor an exceptional interactive experience. The museum is renowned for its learning provision, with an education centre and temporary exhibition space that ensure a vibrant, changing programme of events and activities for everyone to enjoy.

Good value - for less than a fiver you get a day ticket and can leave and come back throughout the day.

“interesting, but not hands on enough for kids”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

The museum is clean and laid out well, but lacks thing in it. I enjoyed reading the information about Roman life, but felt the whole place lacked a story about local life under the Romans. There are some good exhibits, good video exhibits and things to see.
Some more interactivity would be good and possibly more information about the historical changes post-Roman time (but I guess this is the Corinium museum).
The staff are great, they are super helpful and you can pop to Jacks Cafe which is excellent.

“Excellent exhibits, beautifully lit in an airy series of rooms.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

magnificent museum - beautiful mosaics, the very interesting acrostic, roman sculpture etc. But the medieval section is also fascinating. There is often a contemporary crafts exhibition with quality items for sale - in the room near the shop.
