A small but very interesting museum covering aspects of city life and the growth of Chester. We particularly liked the video of the development of the city from pre-Roman times.

My son loves visiting the museum and we took his dad along as well this time, which was lucky as I couldn't get to half of it with the pushchair due to one of the lifts being out of order.

The Grosvenor museum is a must for new visitors. It is free to entre and has a video screen showing a full timescale history of Chester's History from pre roman through to today. It also has many artefacts of its occupation along with roman stonework

This museum didn't really excite me. It contains all the usual "local" museum exhibits and the only thing worth seeing is the collection of rare Roman tombstones. There is also a very good display of silverware, but the Period House is too much like a "chocolate box" full of old bric-a-brac for me.

Good free museum (donations optional) situated in a beautiful house. Take time to watch the 15/20 minute video before browsing the museum as it takes you through the history of Chester and for me this was the best bit as I was a little dissapointed at the exhibits.

Despite the positive comments on here, I found this a really disappointing visit. The subject matter should lend itself to be brought to life but narration was dated and unappealing. Luckily it's free entry but a disappointing experience. Chester surely can do better than this.
