Very good small museum, very informative, many interesting things for the children to take part in, kept them all very interested, and they learned a lot out the history of Chester and Roman period. Freindly helpful staff

This is a nice museum to visit while in Chester. It has a variety of things to see, along with some nice art work. The children will enjoy it as well. You don't need too much time to visit, an hour will do.

We only found out about this museum thanks to our wonderful Roman Solider "guide" on one of the the Roman walking tours of Chester (undertaken in the pouring rain I must add, what a hero, he was brilliant!) The tour at £5 per person for a 90 minute walking tour was well worth every penny and we would highly recommend... More

Free entry, you can make a donation if you like. The reconstructed house accessed via the shop was a delight. Well worth a visit.

As a municipal museum entry is free, well laid out and an interesting view of Roman Chester. Didn't have enough time for a long visit so will definitely return to finish exploring

One might easily pass up visiting this museum and that would be a loss. If you want to understand Roman Chester this is the place to go. The short video at the start provides the context and the special exhibit about Roman stones which was particularly well done. As for the rest of the museum, I'd say that was a... More

Ok ....i know this has free entry (with a suggested minimum donation of £3) but i didn't find it overly interesting. There are leaflets for this in the tourist info shop and other places so we thought we would give it a go when we were passing. Luckily we didn't make a special trip. On entering it was hard to...

Excellent. A really interesting museum with a lot of Roman artefacts to view. I really liked how it was child friendly and as it was school holidays there were several activities going on for the children.
