You’re invited to join an ancient adventure! Experience a fun-filled night at the Museum from your own home. 


Here’s the plan: 

- Build your barrack dens, dress like a Roman, and get ready for a Museum adventure like no other. 

- Go behind the scenes to the Museum Stores, to discover Roman treasures from ancient Isca’s past. 

- Join a VERY special live video call to Rome’s most iconic building – the Colosseum!  

- Armour and Scutum at the ready... travel back in time and assemble to train like legionary soldiers. 

- Fancy a feast?  Discover what the Romans ate, before preparing your own feast-worthy snacks at home!   

- Explore the wonders of a Roman Garden in a virtual 360 visit to Caerleon, before testing your knowledge in an online quiz. 

- Settle down for a film before bed – then join a guided bedtime meditation session, where you’ll visit a magical sacred spring. 

- Fuel up with breakfast in the garden, before creating your own herb gardens and roman treasure!
