About the museum 

Complementing our Roman archaeology collections, there are fascinating artefacts from other eras. From ancient stone tools to striking medieval decorated tiles from Leicester Abbey, there's something to interest the whole family.

The museum grounds contain one of Leicester’s most famous landmarks, the Jewry Wall, part of the roman town's public baths. It is one of the tallest surviving pieces of Roman masonry in the country.

The celebration of Leicester’s roman history continues inside the museum, with stunning collections including detailed mosaics, intricate painted wall plaster and a beautiful Roman cavalry helmet cheek piece.
