Corinium Museum is a local history museum about the Cotswolds and Cirencester located in Cirencester town centre in Gloucestershire.

This indoor attraction has information pertaining to the social and archaeological history of the Cotswolds with particular interest in Cirencester. The museum’s name comes from the fact that the Roman settlement that turned into Cirencester was called Corinium.

The museum has a collection of more than 60,000 historical objects, on which to draw from, to create their exhibits. There are exhibits and displays about how Corinium came into being and what it looked like during Roman occupation and there are also exhibits about Cirencester and the Cotswolds during other eras such as during Saxon times, the Victorian era and Medieval times.
