Welcome to Lancashire’s Only Specialist Roman

Museum in our Centenary Year !  

Virtual Reality Ribchester ! The museum will be showcasing an interactive 3D model of 3rd Century AD Ribchester as part of its centenary events. The  model, which has been under development for the last 18 months, allows the visitor to navigate through the roman fort and its  immediate surroundings and enter some of the reconstructed buildings. The model will become a permanent part of the  museum's exhibits following the centenary and will be developed and enhanced on an ongoing basis.  Screen shots of the  interactive model can be seen on our 3D Model page . 

Ermine Street Guard Event

On Saturday 22nd November we have re- enactors from the Ermine Street Guard doing a show in the Jim Ridge Gallery.  They will be demonstrating the armour and weapons of the Roman Soldier and ansering  any questions that visitors may have about the Roman army and what it was like serving in Britain 1900 years ago.  There will also be opportunities for kids to dress up in Roman armour and handle Roman weapons.  This will be the first time that one of the most famous re-enacting societies has appeared in Ribchester.  Don’t miss out on what will be a very entertaining occasion. Well known illustrator of Roman military subjects Graham Sumner will also be talking about his amazing work. Event starts at 12 noon and finishes at 4 pm The charge for the event is ordinary admission plus £1
