We only had 1 hour but could easily have spent another hour wondering around the various displays. The short video close to the enterance gave a good over view of the history of Chester. The Roman displays were clear and informative, showing various aspects of social and military life and there was an interesting natural history section too. The furnished... More

Unhelpful staff on the reception, the only friendly person was in the art gallery which was displaying a couple of paintings on loan from the Duke, she was happy to discuss the painting with me. Your reception staff could do with a course on customer service and how to deal with the general public ibstead of chatting to each other... More

A really good friendly museum with some excellent information if not a little tired and dated. The Roman antiquities were brilliant. The children could dress up and interact with the displays which is always a winner. Go on, visit.

We spent several hours going through the various exhibitions starting with the film on the historical timeline of Chester. The Roman gallery with the tombstones, the video and explanations are excellent. What a wonderful asset for Chester. The staff were friendly and informative.

This is situated in the centre of Chester. It is a purpose built Victorian red brick building. It includes an art gallery and an interesting Roman section with some well preserved roman tomb stones and artefacts. There is also a Georgian house with room settings with different themes - parlour, nursery, school room etc. A great place for a family... More

As well as a natural history gallery and changing exhibitions, this museum reveals the plans of the Roman fort DEVA in Chester. Here can be seen a collection of Roman gravestones surpassing any in Europe.

Well worth a visit if you have a spare hour or so, its free to go into but they do "suggest" a contribution of £3.00....If you do contribute its worth the £3.00. They have all sorts Roman stuff on show and a couple of videos that you can watch. Well worth a visit and I will go back.

There is a lot to see in this museum. There is a wonderful gallery of Roman artefacts and another with Roman tombstones. These may not sound exciting, but they were, with personal details attached to each one. We spent most of our time in the period house, each room being set out in the furniture and fashions of a specific... More
