“Don't miss the Georgian house”
Review of Grosvenor Museum

A nice little museum, free to get into and the staff are helpful. The Roman stones are well displayed and explained. But for me the highlight was the adjacent Georgian house, which is part of the museum and has rooms laid out from different periods in history.

A relatively small museum , there are plenty of roman artifacts and lots of interesting facts about Chester's roman past.
There is also a Georgian terraced house that depicts life in a Georgian and Victorian household. This part of the museum is spread over four floors but there is a lift.
If it's a rainy day or you have a short time to spare the museum is worth a visit.

Much of the park is presently fenced off as the park is undergoing restoration to return it to its Victorian Splendor. The park actually looks quite scruffy due to large areas looking like a building site although I'm sure it will look very different when the work is completed IN spring 2014.

Nice open park between the river and the city - lots of squirrels and room to roam. Small lake and little railway for children in the summer.

For anyone with an interest in Roman Britain this museum is a real find, it is a pity it is so small, everything is very cramped but well worth a visit. The showcases of Roman atifacts, especially carvings is quite sectacular
