3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

In terms of Roman Heritage Chester has not much to offer. At least the dewa Centre is an opportunity to look at the excavations which detail the Roman, Saxon, medieval foundations. The roman ruins are all at least twenty feet underground.If you want to see Roman ruins/ artifacts then visit the centres on Hadrians wall which are 50 times better

“An absolute waste of money!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Dark and dismal, smelly and with cheap displays. Nobody around, just as well as I wanted to complain! There was simply not enough to keep anyone interested, which was a great shame as Chester has so much to offer otherwise. We were Seniors visiting, but I would never take my grandchildren there as there are so many better attractions and museums, some of them free

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

This is an interesting site but I was hoping to have a go at archealogical excavating and this wasnt allowed. Very good interactive area that would be good for children but didnt hold our adult attention.

“Very Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

An interesting visit and experience. Chester is full of history but the emphasis of the Dewa Roman Experience is just that, based on the Roman history in Chester. Gladiators in full regalia wander around, they even take you on a tour of the city. It's a good little experience and you get to find out the history of Chester, see some archeology and there is a little museum full of Roman artifacts and there is a little gift shop.

“Good for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This is a so-so attraction for adults but I think kids would like it as there are hands-on things for kids to do. For adults it's a bit ho-hum and it is expensive for what it is.
