The Trimontium Museum

Visit us in our BRAND NEW museum in Melrose, which tells the story of the Roman presence at Trimontium and across the Scottish Borders.

You can view over 400 newly loaned finds from the fort excavations of 1905-1910, see the finest collection of Roman military equipment in Britannia, watch an array newly commissioned films, see our newly acquired ballista (bolt thrower replica from the Roman Military Research Society) all set in stunning new gallery designed by Campbell & Co of Edinburgh.

You can also find out about our walks, talks and engagment activities and catch up on the latest news from The Trust and even volunteer or join The Trimontium Museum Trust.


We can now offer guided school walks around the Trimontium Roman fort site and museum visits in Melrose.
