Overview

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.

This is a fantastic museum illustrating the Romans in the Cotswolds. Fantastic artefacts well displayed and informative. The mosaics are quite stunning and one gets a picture of the area being affluent under the Romans.

Great museum explaining the (surprisingly long) history of Cirencester. Visited on a rainy day and lots to engage both adults and kids in between a stint of Christmas shopping in Cirencester!
