Corinium Museum

Visit the Corinium Museum and step back in time. Learn what the Romans did for us, and how life wouldn’t be the same without them!

Take a peek through a Roman town house, and enjoy the sights and smells of our Roman garden. Marvel at the stunning mosaics, and experience what it was like to be a Roman soldier.

“The Corinium Museum illustrates better than anywhere else what it must have been like to live in a prosperous Roman town.” Neil Holbrook, Time Team.

The Corinium Museum has one of the finest and most extensive Roman collections in the country. Corinium, Roman Cirencester, was the second largest Roman town outside London and the major Roman administration centre for south-western Britain.
