After visiting a coupe of other local museums this week I collected some leaflets of which this was one of the recommended visitor attractions. I read there was a specific event on for Roman medicine of which I thought would be intresting. (Of which is was however it was very small and could be completed in 10 minuets) Upon visiting...

I visited here with my 17 yo, 13 yo & 10 yo. We had a very enjoyable time. It's the perfect amount of exhibits, not so much they feel that they're just seeing the same thing over & over again and start get bored & mischievous! The staff were all warm & good at getting the kids involved. I especially... More

A small museum but worth a visit. After my disappointment with the Deva Experience this was a pleasant change.There are different rooms of exhibits but it really focuses on the Roman history of Chester and is in a lovely building.

If you are going to Chester and want to learn more about its Roman history and origin go there! The Museum has a small natural history section as well as a silver Collection. Most of its Exhibition though is about the Roman and Things that were found during excavations. A good start to go here first and then venture to... More

Never been here before despite living fairly locally all my life. Nice range of galleries and exhibits with a lot of focus on Chester's Roman history unsurprisingly! However wider exhibits too including a really good period Victorian house at the back. Well worth a visit. Free entry but please throw a few pounds in the donation box. Also do the... More

We was looking for things to do to kill an afternoon so decided to go here and to the military museum which are just around the corner from each other. The comments people make about the place being run down and worn out have some credence to them but i bet they are also the same people that walked out... More

A really nice little museum with some very interesting exhibits. Something for all age ranges. The reconstruction of a house was great and you almost felt you were back in time. There was no pressure to buy guides etc which was good and you were left to enjoy the place at your leisure. The only niggle I had which was... More

In July 2016 I went back to Chester Grosvenor Museum many years after my last visit. It has the feel of a small-ish provincial museum but has some real gems...I loved the interiors of old houses, the Roman artefacts and the "In Good Humour" special exhibition...also some great silverware if that interests you. Worth a visit, but don't expect to... More

An informative way to spend half a day. It is free to enter, but a donation of £3 per person is recommended. Our sight seeing hop on and hop off bus stopped nearly outside the door.

The museum is free (donations accepted) and won't take a great deal of time to cover, but there are some interesting parts and gives you a good overview of the history of Chester from the Roman age
