Interesting history of Chester video, excellent roman areas and currently(?) an interesting exhibition about women archaeologists/geologists - well known and less so. Did not see that advertised which is a shame as, tucked away in a corner, it will be missed by many. The Sublime Landscapes art exhibition was interesting as was the prize art exhibition. A well spent couple... More

This is a tiny museum (destined, it seems, to get even tinier) on the fringe of the Chester CBD but well within walking distance of the Walls. We were a little hesitant about making the visit, but boy-oh-boy, was it worth it! Frankly I never knew that Chester had such a remarkable history as far as the Roman occupation was... More

Perhaps going during school visits and when parts of the museum was closed was not the best start but the reviews seemed to suggest this was the place to go to.Admittedly the Victorian house was worth the visit and the Roman remnants also very interesting but the overall experience was one of feeling a little let down.Maybe I was expecting...

It is excellent that this museum is free to visit. Inside there are many interesting and informative displays and collections but they are a mixed bag. The roman antiquities and Chester silver are both valuable culturally and monetarily, and well displayed; but the house with period room 'sets' are poor in quality and historical accuracy. The gallery of paintings displays... More

Went into the Grosvenor Museum to take a look as its free to enter, There are plenty of rooms downstairs with paintings and one room with a dvd show about the history of Chester lasting for about 10 mins. Upstairs are more rooms covering the roman times with lots to see and all well labelled.

Located away from the shoppers and Chester's famous Rows, this museum forms part of the larger Castle precinct (Court House, University buildings, Military Museum) yet only 5 minutes from the heart of Chester. Proud of its collection related to the Roman presence, a fun visit for the kids and an easy 60-90 minute adult experience. Five star in parts, solid... More

Have visited the museum before and was not disappointed when visiting again! The museum is informative and also contains interact activities for children and adults. When I visited there were staff members allowing visitors to examine artefacts from the past. The museum has a walk information about the Romans and how Chester was formed. It also has a house with... More

Not the most exciting museum in the world, but if you can get a parking space right outside, you get 30 minutes free parking and then popping into the Grosvenor is worthwhile. Here you will see a bit of the history of Chester, a good video, and bits and pieces which I won't tell you about else it won't be... More

This museum is really interesting, interactive and has so many different kinds of things in there. We especially loved the old house at the back of the museum and the fact that we could vote for our favourite art work.
