Canterbury Roman Museum
Rare Late Iron Age Soldiers Helmet now on display
Following a rejuvenating makeover in March 2013, Canterbury Roman Museum provides a fascinating and family friendly insight into Roman Canterbury.
Built around the remains of an original Roman town house with mosaics and under-floor heating, the museum includes significant Roman finds and a brand new timeline which tracks the journey back in time from present day Canterbury to the original Roman street level. See how the Roman town was built, stroll through the marketplace, handle replica dishes in the recreated Roman dining room, and discover amazing objects including rare tools, glass and a hoard of hidden treasure.
