Fodor's Expert Review Canterbury Roman Museum

Canterbury Museum/Gallery
Below ground, at the level of the remnants of Roman Canterbury, this small but informative museum tells the story of the area's distant Roman past. Highlights of the collection include a hypocaust—the Roman version of central heating—and two colorful floor mosaics dating from around the year 270, that were unearthed in the aftermaths of the bombs that fell on Canterbury during World War II. Displays of excavated objects (some of which you can hold in the Touch the Past area) and computer-generated reconstructions of Roman buildings and the marketplace help re-create the past.
