Dramatically sited on the cliffs overlooking the Solway Firth, this award winning museum is next to a Roman fort probably founded in the first Century AD and rebuilt during the reign of Hadrian. The fort was an important element in the complex frontier system known as Hadrian’s Wall. The museum displays the largest group of Roman military altar stones and inscriptions from any site in Britain and unique examples of Romano-British religious sculpture.
Most of the objects in the Museum derive from the fort at Maryport and the Roman civil settlement attached to it. In the Museum grounds, you can climb the observation tower for a clear view of the full extent of the site, which recent geophysical survey has revealed to have been one of the largest and best preserved in the north.
West Cumbria’s only Roman Museum. At the western end of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site overlooking the Solway Firth, the museum displays the collection recovered from the Roman fort at Maryport. The museum tells the story of Roman life and beliefs on the edge of the Roman Empire. This small charity-run museum is housed one of the last remaining Victorian Naval Reserve Training Battery buildings.
The museum is currently open from 11am – 5pm, with last entry at 4.30pm.
