The Trimontium Museum in Melrose officially opened today, Thursday 21 April by the HRH Duke of Gloucester, Patron of the Trimontium Trust with invited guests at the museum.
The new Trimontium Museum opened its doors to visitors back in August 2021, following a £1.4 million transformation but due to Covid restrictions there has been no fanfare to mark the occasion until now.
Over 5,000 visitors have visited the Museum since August 2021 with rave reviews about the makeover from the old museum space to the stunning modern gallery which houses one of the finest collections of Roman military objects on display anywhere in the UK. This renovation was made possible thanks to the support and funding from multiple organisations & individuals including, The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Scottish Borders Council, Live Borders, South of Scotland Enterprise, Scottish Government, National Museums Scotland & Museums and Galleries Scotland and many years of dedicated meticulous planning, hard work and fundraising from the Trust.

The museum is now open daily for the spring and summer with an online booking system which also allows for drop-in visitors. The Trust runs guided fort and town trail history walks and a series of online talks. More information about these and much, much more can be found on the museum website:
