Nice little museum, no set entrance fee but they suggest a donation of £3 per person. We spent about an hour there and visited all the rooms. We found the Victorian house to be the most interesting part.

Called in by chance for a break, after walking around the walls, and me and my 8 year old son were very pleasantly surprised. The Roman relics were brilliant and well presented, and the photo exhibition was interesting. Also activities for my son to do.And all for free!(made donation of course)!

Lovely little museum to spend some time especially if a rainy day only downside is if there is a school trip going round can be a little rowdy

We had time to spare while our wives were shopping so decided to give it a go. I wish we had gone shopping instead !!! The place was quite depressing and the articles on show were uninspiring. We lasted about 15 minutes and could not stand the excitement anymore so went up the road to a pub !!! I have... More

Popped in to learn a little more about Chester. Short introductory film and all usual exhibits plus a temporary exhibitions space. Best of all it is free!

Though a short walk from the centre of town, this was a worthwhile detour (and not just to get out of the rain). Though I was there at the same time as a large group of primary school children on a school trip (necessitating careful planning of the order in which I was going to visit the galleries!) I did...

The magnificent large glass display cases were virtually empty, we thought the museum must have been burgled of its exhibits. Very disappointing show for a major Roman city. The tour became more bizarre when stepping through a doorway into a Victorian household, even the caretaker was unable to explain the fast forward transition from a Roman culture to the Victorian...

The museum has a good range of exhibits detailing a lot of the history, both man-made and natural, of the area. Definitely worth the 2 hour visit and the small donation.
