I went to the Grosvenor Museum the other week with family (up to 60 years old) and friends (in our mid to late 20s) and had a lovely time. We only planned to go there for a little bit of shelter from the weather whilst walking The Walls but we all really enjoyed it. The museum is free for all... More

This is a good little museum with some really interesting facts. On entry, you are greeted by an audio clip which was so loud it made my 8 year old cry. Once the tears dried, we enjoyed the rest of the trip but it is a touch expensive for such a small museum. Would recommend it for primary kids to... More

There would appear to be something for all interests in this imaginative museum. For me, there was an admirable collection of Roman gravestones, interesting information on Roman house building. some impressive fossils and geology and a set of old recorders. Most personally surprising was a microscope from the Buxton 'Micrarium' in Derbyshire. It must be 20 years since we enjoyed... More

This is somewhere to go that is both very interesting and it's free, but there is a donations box in the main entrance. There is serval rooms with exhibits on different floors plus the ground floor room is normally where they put special exhibits at the time like an art gallery of paintings of Chester was there last time I...

An excellent place to spend some time on a wet day. Thoroughly enjoyed the Samurai exhibition. Varied other exhibits also. Entrance is free but donation is suggested.
