The multi award winning Corinium Museum in the Cotswold town of Cirencester in England has a large collection of objects found in and around the locality. The bulk of the exhibits are from the Roman town of Corinium Dobunnorum, but the museum includes material from as early as the Neolithic and all the way up to Victorian times.

The museum is famous for its fine collection of 2nd- and 4th-century Roman mosaic floors and carvings, as well other Roman objects, large and small.

The Corinium Museum reopened in June 2005, following major refurbishment funded by the Cotswold District Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
