“A window into Roman life”

National Roman Legion Museum
Ranked #2 of 6 things to do in Caerleon
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 August 2014

OK, so it's a little hokey. But Caerleon is all about Romans, and here you can try being one! They have all sorts of interactive stuff; I'm sure it's great for kids. My teen and I tried on the Roman helmet and armor--it was all such fun.

I live locally, and when family visit we always take them to the museum, and we have always had a great time.we have taken several groups of children who always do the quiz and really enjoy it and get given a pencil or toy at the end by the staff who mark their answers. This time when I took my cousins children they weren't given anything at the end. Not a problem, but the children before us were, and the children afterwards were. We are English, they were Welsh. I was upset as I didn't expect to be treated like that at the museum. we always tell people how lovely it is there, but now, I don't think I will go again. Such a shame the staff was so racist.

We came across this museum when looking at what to do in the wet whilst on holiday. Friendly, helpful staff, a small but informative museum, child friendly activities topped off with the obligatory dressing up costumes. What's more it is free! Highly recommended.

We visited the reconstruction and excavation of the Roman baths. Wonderful recreation, great information and very helpful staff.
