The Romans are here!


What did the Romans ever do for us? A lot! They invented concrete, aquaducts, bound books, highways and even welfare to name a few things. If we could travel back in time and visit Ancient Rome, we would be very surprised to see how many aspects of our society resemble those of 2,000 years ago.

Explore and experience the mighty machines, gadgets and clever technologies of the Roman Empire 52BC - 476AD. Visitors can interact with hands-on machines and experience virtual reality displays, reconstructed scaled models, recreated artwork and frescos.

Journey back in time to relive history and discover the culture, the determination and the engineering genius that carved the great Roman Empire 52BC-476AD. Admission applies. Find out more.
