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.

Very well laid out exhibits, and clearly explained. Good to watch the DVD film on the history of the town. Good disabled access if needed.

Great to just wonder through, so many roman artifacts- a great collection. The Museum is free but is worth giving a donation.

So many Roman tombstones..need to be a history buff to take it all in. The museum needs to think about how to get people to interact with its exhibits, rather that relying on their ability to sustain interest through what could be a rather tedious visit

The museum occupies a lovely building in itself. I thoroughly enjoyed the video and the downstairs room of the picturesque Chester display the most which explains much of the history of the heritage and most especially The Rows.

Has a good collection of Roman artefacts especially the tombstones. Don't miss the rooms upstairs at the back of the museum by the shop.

This museum whilst traditional concentrates heavily on certain periods of Chester's history while seemingly ignoring others - other than the interesting short introductory video! We could not enter one of the ground floor galleries due to the strong, obnoxious and possibly fume-based smell which the staff did not find unusual or concerning. The exhibition concerning the stones and the related... More

Located on 3 floors - with some areas catering for schools/young children. There is a lift if you prefer.Good cine as you enter provides a history of Chester which lasts about 10 mins. If it's busy, just head back to it as no time slot provided. Free to go round - however, we gave a donation. Staff friendly and helpful.
