Romans Set To March Back To The Cotswolds

The Romans are coming back to the Cotswolds.

The award-winning Corinium Museum, renowned for its Roman Cirencester exhibits, is set to re-open on Monday 17 May.

The Museum will be open from 10 am to 5 pm Monday through to Saturday, and 2 pm to 5 pm on Sundays so you can enjoy a great day out with friends, Romans, and countryfolk.

Cllr Jenny Forde, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing at Cotswold District Council, said, “The Corinium Museum is one of the ‘must-see’ attractions in the Cotswolds and it’s wonderful that we can finally re-open the doors to everyone.

“I would really urge anyone who hasn’t been before to make a visit, it is a brilliant day out for individuals or families to find out more about our amazing local history.

“We have put a number of measures in place in line with Government guidance so visitors can be confident that the journey through the museum will be a pleasant and safe experience for all.”

Amanda Hart, Corinium Museum Director, said, “At long last, we can re-open. It’s been a tough time for many of us, and especially hard-hitting for our Museum. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, supporters and friends of the Museum for all their hard work and support.

“We have something for all ages and whether you are local or visiting, the museum has lots of fascinating exhibits exploring the diverse and exciting history of the Cotswolds.

“I would also like to reassure visitors that our immersive and spacious Museum is absolutely ready to extend a warm welcome and we cannot wait to see you.”

The museum has continued to grow with new immersive exhibits and activities added to make the experience even better.

Amanda, added: “This latest lockdown has given us time to work on some great new formats and offerings for our visitors and supporters which are really interesting.”

To continue with social distancing requirements, the number of visitors to the museum will be limited and tickets will need to be booked in advance online at coriniummuseum.org.

The Museum achieved the Visit Britain’s ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry standard last year by demonstrating adherence to the respective Government and public health guidance and the implementation of new safety measures.
