Our temporary exhibition in Abbey House, Melrose is closed for the winter and will reopen in Spring 2021. If you have a group that would like to visit during this period please do get in touch with us (contact us here) and we can arrange opening exclusively for you. Our main museum site is currently undergoing extensive redevelopment for a planned opening summer 2021.
At Abbey House visitors can learn about the fort site at nearby Newstead, see Roman finds from the Trust’s collection, watch a newly commissioned film, see our newly acquired working, replica Roman ballistae (bolt throwers) and learn about the Trust’s exciting new development project.
We also run guided walks to the Trimontium fort site from the museum gardens on a regular basis, see our events page for the next walk. We also organise talks, lectures and events throughout the year and as the COVID restictions change we will advertise these though our events page & social media.
