Excellent place and very interesting. Adults as well as young people enjoyed it very much. It is only a small interactive musuem but is worth a visit if you are walking the Chester walls. Very reasonably priced

The exhibition is housed inside 2 towers located on the city walls. It is interesting to see the tower interiors as they are not accessible unless the exhibition is visited. Don't miss the opportunity to see a fully restored Camera Obscura in the first tower...More
