“Great little museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Really nice museum which the kids (mostly) enjoyed. The room with stuffed animals and microscopes to look at insects was a big hit. Also the silver room is quite brilliant. Worth a look if you are walking down to the River Dee from the city centre.

“Some interesting displays but more 'small town' than city museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Various rooms on different themes - Roman history, natural history, silver, art etc. The house with a room from various periods in time is interesting, although not specifically about Chester.
