Built around the remains of an original Roman town house with mosaics and under-floor heating, the museum features significant Roman finds. A brand new timeline tracks Canterbury back in time from the present-day city to the original Roman street level, revealing how the Roman town was built. In the market place there's a food bar selling oysters and seafood from the coast, a fabric seller and shoemaker, a bone-pin maker, vegetable seller and jewellery stall.

Visitors are invited to handle replica dishes in the recreated Roman dining room, and discover amazing objects including rare tools, glass and a hoard of hidden treasure.
