Hard to find, hidden down a little street called Butchery Lane, and no signage on High Street!
£8 per adult, children are free. The joint ticket that includes Canterbury Heritage Museum is better value if it's open when you visit Canterbury (£12 adults). Allow 45 mins - 1 hour to see this museum, (an extra hour for the other museum.)
Some amazing artefacts that I've never seen elsewhere before - Iron Age helmet, Roman spade, superb glass etc!! They've made most of the exhibit cases low enough for children to see them which is great, although some still tall for my preschoolers. Activity sheets available at an extra cost, although we didn't try these.
The parts of the Roman house are in situ, (hypocaust and mosaic floors) they're behind glass, but still get a great view, although not much explanation in this part of the museum.
At the end of the museum are dressing up clothes, a magnetic mosaic wall, bits of real Roman pottery etc to feel and hold. The kids loved this part.
Great for history loving kids or for a Roman project. Extra activities in the school holidays.
