As a keen researcher and roman history enthusiast I was very impressed by the museum and very pleasantly surprised by the content of the museum and the professionalism of the staff.The exhibits are varied and interesting and the 3 sites (museum,bath house and granery) show how important Ribchester must have been to the Romans.There is a very good Map in the museum that clearly shows the layout of the Harbours,storage depots and forts across England that helped Me understand the tactical deployments of troops required for the Romans to establish themselves in and control the area.The size of the granery makes you realise the importance of keeping the troops fed and the substantial bath house remains demonstrate that the Ribchester Garrison was 'Here to stay'.I thoroughly enjoyed My visit and the member of staff there was very helpful.

A nice little museum with great information about the Roman fort that was here. Helpful and accommodating staff. Beautiful spot on the River Ribble.

After reading a artical in Lancashire Life about the Roman Museum in Ribchester this afternoon we went along to the museum to have a look.
Addmission was £3.00 for adults well worth the money it was extremley interesting lots of display boards full of interesting information and lots of displays of Roman artifacts.
We also visited the Roman Baths which are just a short walk down the road from the Roman Museum and at the baths we saw the stone remains of the Roman baths also interesting.
We had a lovely afternoon and after the museum and the Roman Baths we had a walk round the lovely village of Ribchester all well worth a visit.

Ribchester is a beautiful place to visit. The roman baths etc and the old church are wonderful. However paying to go into the museum where most exhibits are either photographs or reproductions was a little disappointing.
