Quite interesting

Some interesting exhibits and research done here. Lovely architecture in such a classic building. Particularly like the stuff on Chester's past.

I visited here many times while I was studying Roman history as some of the things they have are truly outstanding. They have done an excellent job of taking the history of Chester and making it understandable to everyone :) Well worth a visit!

We were so impressed with the detailed research that has been undertaken and the exhibits. The staff are really helpful and you learn so much from what what has gone in Chester before.

I finally visited the Grosvenor after living on the Wirral for a decade. Parking near the racecourse is convenient. Entry is free. The museum has a strong emphasis on Roman history and more widely the history of Chester. We enjoyed the special exhibition about Roman medicine and the natural history gallery, which is filled with Victorian stuffed animals. Make sure... More

We visited at the end of the day and ran out of time, so we returned the next day. Lots of interesting exhibits and the house at the back (through the shop) is well worth avisit to see the different periods brought to life

This is a very interesting museum for all ages. Roman artefacts and soldiers, 19th century paintings and tip top silver etc, The guide for the paintings however does need refreshment on presentation skills.Otherwise very good staff.

Went here to satisfy our craving for all things archaeological. Chester was the site of one of the roman legionary fortresses in Britain. Not that much remains of it but this museum does attempt to tell the story.

I love small museums like this, where everything is of local interest. Could be considered a bit old fashioned, but worth a visit.
