I am ambivalent about this sort of place. For what it is, it is well presented, being especially good for children who will learn without knowing they are! For me the best bit was the real excavations; I found the reconstruction / experience bits less...More

Great place to see with not only displays but lots of interactive things for children. Our 7 year old really enjoyed being able to dress up. Would definately recommend a visit, especially if visiting with children.

It was really interesting to read about the wages of the Roman Soldiers! The Experience also includes interacting...More

Eductational but quite small - you are left to wonder round and read the signage. You travel into the basement of the building to see the building work through the ages and some bits of interactive stuff for the children and adults who haven't grown...More
