Roman Museum & Baths Summer Events
August 4, 2022

Our National Roman Legion Museum is now fully open again after Covid restrictions were lifted. Museum manager Dai Price was pleased to confirm that the attraction is now fully reopened every day (including bank holiday Mondays) 10am-5pm – which is actually an increase in opening hours as the museum previously opened only during the afternoons on Sundays, from 2pm – 5pm.

As well as visiting the museum collection, every Friday in August there will be an event running between 11am-1pm & 2pm-4pm where visitors can hear a Roman explain about lotions & potions in the ancient world.

Along with this there are numerous digital events planned.  Information on this and other events can be found here:

Continuing the Roman theme, Sian Warfield Head Custodian at Caerleon Roman Baths has advised that The Baths have a Summer Trail running every Saturday in August from 10am to 4pm: The Roman Baths Treasure Hunt!

Personal valuables often went missing during a visit to the Baths, leaving a treasure trove of unusual objects, hidden for almost 2000 years.  Explore the Baths and find the lost treasures!
