The museum features real 3D technology in its film theatre, the Eagle's Eye projection, an animated film covers the construction of Hadrian's Wall. Interactive displays enable visitors to understand what life was like for soldiers on this northern frontier. In the Latin classroom, a teacher is conjured from the past using a hologram to give an entertaining lesson in maths and morals.  

The museum also houses unique Roman artefacts including the only surviving Roman helmet crest and a set of four Roman horse shoes.
