Come face to face with some of the treasures of the Cotswolds in the award-winning Corinium Museum. Cirencester sits on the site of what was once the second largest Roman city in England, then known as Corinium, so what better place to discover some of the artefacts that tell the story of the people and places that once stood on the site?
Peer through the window of a Roman villa and into the lives of the Romans, marvel at the handiwork of prehistoric metal smiths and admire the buried treasure that once belonged to Anglo Saxons. The museum’s also home to medieval sculptures, coin hoards that depict the urgency of the Civil War and beautiful mosaic floors that capture the imagination of visitors.
Thanks to interactive displays and games for the younger visitors, the Cornium Museum makes an engaging attraction for visitors of all ages, and it hosts special events and exhibitions throughout the year to bring the collections to life. There’s a café onsite too, so if you fancy a bite to eat before you step into the past you’ll find a selection of hot and cold snacks available to complete your visit.
