The Senhouse Roman Museum is one of eleven Roman museums in the Frontiers of the Roman Empire: Hadrian’s Wall, World Heritage Site. The museum cares for and displays the Netherhall Collection and other collections of Romano-British objects from West Cumbria. It develops permanent and temporary exhibitions, has a growing public engagement programme of events and activities for the general public, specialist groups and education groups, and a proactive research programme on the collection and the site it was recovered from. The Netherhall Collection, which was begun by the Senhouse family in the 1570s, is the oldest private collection in the country, and is of international importance. The museum displays the largest group of Roman military altar stones and inscriptions from any site in Britain and unique examples of Romano-British religious sculpture. Senhouse Roman Museum is governed by the Senhouse Museum Trust (CIO no 5107910).
The Senhouse Roman Museum joins the Prosper North community as part of Edition 3.
