Try on a toga, make a mosaic and handle real Roman objects!

Canterbury Roman Museum provides a family-friendly insight into life in Roman Britain.

Famed for its exquisite mosaics and underfloor heating; the museum is built around the remains of an original Roman town house. Visitors can explore Canterbury’s history, wander through the marketplace and discover hidden treasures.

There is so much to make and do: Try on a toga, make a mosaic, handle real Roman objects and much, much more!
