Full of interesting historical facts about Chester and it's history. A comprehensive section about the roman times, natural history and art.

I had not been here for over forty years. Chester is a fantastic Roman site and the remains on show here are wonderful. A computer generated film gives you are very good picture of the city.

Lots of different rooms on various themes. Enjoyed the period house, Roman artefacts and displays. Nice hands-on for children in natural history room. Silver display impressive also.

I had read reviews that this was a must see. I think it was a good museum but not a must. It is free which is wonderful and because of that it is worth a visit. Great artifacts and if you like history a great place.

The place is not going to bowl you over. It is a quaint place with a number of rooms...(make sure you travel through the gift shop to the rooms on the other side!).,,it was an interesting place to spend a bit of time while it was pouring outside!

A traditional museam which perhaps will appear to the more mature visitors but in reality a huge dissapointment for a young family. Some great exhibits but little if any use of todays modern technology to create a vibrant interactive attraction. Given Chesters fantastic Roman heritage an opportunity lost

I visited the museum as something to do last minute on a rainy afternoon. It was free admission so worth visiting if looking for something to do just to fill part of your day without spending money. It was ok but could be made a lot more of. Some things were very interesting such as the real skeletons & details... More

This museum could perhaps be described as a more traditional style museum. It serves as a good introduction to Chester and is informative. The are some good exhibits and the building itself is quite impressive. There is also a natural history room, which has activities for children as well. The staff are friendly and allow you to walk around at... More

This little museum is truly wonderful. Keeping kids engaged and interested in it's hands-on exhibits and room lay outs. It will not take too long to get right around the place - probably just over an hour. There is also a lovely gift shop (gifts not tat) at the end of the visit. Spare time in Chester? -especially on an... More
