Roman artifacts & a free visit

really good museum with lots of interesting articles from the Roman times on display plus a bonus of a Victorian house at the back of the museum so you get 2 things in 1.

This is a lovely step back in time, the old house is tucked away behind the gift shop, a must find as its a lovely display showing how the family lived all those years ago beautiful artwork and antiques.

We took a visit to this museum and were impressed with the Roman History, the video on arrival and the Louise Rayner artwork is a must see, it is fabulous. The blond girl on arrival was super friendly and very knowledgeable.

We found much more to enjoy here than expected. The building itself is interesting, the introductory video about Chester is an informative start for the visit, the Roman section has some first class exhibits with very good explanations of their meaning and importance, the silver collection is a real treasure, but the highlight was an exhibition of watercolours of old...

Minutes walk from the centre of the City, the Grosvenor Museum is certainly worth an hour or so of your time when visiting Chester. There is a short video explaining how the city has developed and many exhibites dating from the Roman times. Children can try on costumes and really get involved. There is one room dedicated to silver which... More

We visited the museum as our first point of interest in Chester... It was well laid out with friendly staff on hand to give an explanation of the heritage attached to the building as well as Chester as a whole. Our visit coincided with a school trip and it was lovely to see young ones enjoying their learning in such... More

Staff are pleasant, the museum has plenty of activities for the children. Okay to pass an hour away. It is free and a donation is greatly received.

Didn't take all that long to walk around, but it's free so can't really complain. The exhibits are interesting and tell you a bit more about local history - particularly the roman occupation. I was a little bit disappointed with the period house - while it was fascinating to see a house set out at different periods, I thought the... More

I have been coming here for more years than I care to disclose and still find it fascinating. Also a handy place to go if it is raining. If you are in the vicinity it is well worth a visit.
