No charge for entry. This is an old fashioned style Museum. The best part was the display of Roman artefacts

Some of the exhibits are a bit hodge podge (we found some stuff and displayed it), but there is a good video history of the area, and a quite interactive exhibit on some Roman finds. I'd recommend going if you'd like to find out about the area, and it's free to wander round (suggested donation of a couple pounds).

Super well organized museum in Chester downtown area. Very nice staff that helps you with searching what is you are looking for. Lovely displays of Roman era etc… Interesting museum to visit, and so much to learn, so much to see. My favorite was roman section. There is no entrance fee but donation is appreciated.

This eclectic museum has something for everyone, in my case the Roman artefacts rescued from the Walls together with their stories, and the Dioramas (?) or rooms furnished and mannequins dressed according to period.

I attended a lecture on Rembrandthe and Vermeet. It was interesting but it lasted almost two hours so we left before it ended The museum is very small but well kept.

We ended going in through the back entrance (only us haha) to an extremely helpful lady who explained what was in each room and area and how to get onto the right path. The house was interesting smelling the smells and learning about the different times. Then we headed to the history of chester which again we found interesting and... More
