“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

A very good grounding in the history of Chester. You would pay a lot for this in York! Although I am local I found this very interesting

“Stunning park set in the centre of Chester not too far from the River.”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Grosvenor Park has some stunning beauty set in Chester's city centre. 5 minutes walk away from Chester's amphitheatre and offers many paths and trails around some stunning flowers and scenery. A popular spot in summer for picnics. It also hosts a music concert every year which is also great! It has a children's play area, ice-cream shop and a kids railway track.

“Waste of time”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We were just so disappointed with this museum, downstairs there are a few cabinets of Roman stuff, upstairs a gallery and a room of stuffed birds and animals and thats about it, it will probably take half an hour to go around and thats being kind. Our time was better spent walking around the Roman walls.

“Don't miss the Georgian house”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

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.

“Small and Compact.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

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.
