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.

A lot of museums seem to be dumbed down for kids these days, but Corinuium was very interesting. The kids still seemed to be enjoying it as well.

This museum is ideal for families. It has much to appeal to children and it was great to see so many there enjoying the history. That is not to say that adults cannot also enjoy this very well presented and equipped attraction.

A great way to while away an afternoon. A superb museum with lots to do. My youngest daughter loved the children's quizzes but there was lots for adults to look at too.

Roman mosaics and artefacts great for inspiring my sons school project. Hand's on exhibits in most areas kept the kids happy.

The museu appears to have been either recently smartened up or is well maintained. The informative boards are at a sensible level of detail, however the mosaics were the star attractions for us. Adjoining cafe is friendly and reasonable.
