Roman Army Museum is a museum located on Hadrians Wall in the North of England. Modernised and reopened in 2011 it is run by the Vindolanda Trust and is located at the Roman Fort of Magnis, which is now known as Carvoran Roman Fort. The museum has three galleries covering the Roman army and its Empire. The museum displays genuine Roman artifacts from the excavations at Vindolanda and include weapons and armor, coins and leather and wooden artifacts which allow you to step into the life of a Roman soldier living on the front line of Emperor Hadrian’s Wall.
There is a 3D film showing Hadrian’s Wall past and present, and a large timeline of the history of the Wall. One of the galleries describes daily life in the Roman army as seen through the eyes of a team of eight auxiliary soldiers, complete with a film showing their activities.
