Verulamium is the award winning museum of everyday life in Roman Britain. It is on the site of one of the major cities in Roman Britain set in attractive parkland and near Roman theatre, walls and hypocaust.
There is a new Iron Age gallery, recreated Roman rooms, discovery areas and some of the best mosaics outside the Mediterranean.
Every 2nd weekend of the month the gallery is invaded by Roman legionaries who recreate life as a foot soldier in the Roman Imperial Army.

Heritage Open Days: Two Roman Citizens Brace Themselves!
- 12 September 2015
Three special performances of a family show as part of the celebrations to mark the display of the Sandridge Hoard at Verulamium Museum. The Sandridge Coin hoard consists of 159 gold coins dating from the 4th century, the very end of Roman Rule of Britain. The hoard was discovered in 2012 and we will be opening the new display this September.
Two Roman Citizens Brace Themselves! invites the audience to step back in time to the late Roman period and meet a mosaicist and a wealthy landowner. They will discover why the landowner is burying his money.
Each shows last approximately 20 minutes. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
