Really interesting little museum with plenty to see considering it's size. Extremely popular. You can pay to go on a march with a Roman soldier where you get to listen to the experiences and be instructed on how to use your sword.

This small museum is packed with fascinating information and artifacts. There are archaeological diggings inside the museum enabling viewing down 3 metres of history below the present level of Chester's streets. Link that with a walk round the Roman walls with all its information boards...More
