Great visit! Super for children with lots of hands on. Really excellent value. The food in the cafe was superb and it was great Not to be ripped off! Staff outstanding too!
I have been here on many occasions - sometimes as an individual or at other times with parties of school children. Plenty to see and do. You realise how advanced the Romans were in some aspects of life and so primitive in other ways - notably human rights. Something for everyone. Good viewing gallery. Well signed on roads. Very impressive entrance. Take you time in the museum as often people just move on without reading about Roman life and their thinking.
