From Roman Times

The Novium

The Novium, Chichester’s new museum, by architect Keith Williams, is built above the remains of a Roman Bath House. The exposed Roman Bath remains, together with associated object displays, populate the ground floor space and are supported by films projected on the surrounding walls.

​The first floor gallery is entitled Place and shows how the city and surrounding area have changed over the years. A huge display case takes centre stage and presents four themes: Trading Places, Connecting Places, Domestic Places and Burial Places.

​Event’s creative strategy takes a thematic rather than chronological route. Interpretation focuses on human emotions. Ideas and feelings to which every visitor can relate, enable the story of Chichester to be expressed through objects. Visitors enter a world of treasures and experiences with plenty of handling opportunities to engage with the objects at first hand.
