Had a laugh going round here. We were stuck between school parties which is an occupational hazard in places like this I suppose. But it's nicely done and a lot more fun than the Roman rooms at the Grosvenor Museum (although they DO have gorgeous...More

We felt this place was difficult to find, down a narrow side street with only one sign. It gave us some background regarding putting Chester on the map by the Romans. There was a short video and everything was labeled clearly.

Dewa seemed to have been tucked away, almost out of sight. It is a great pity as it is an interesting museum with lots of finds to see. Chester could take a look at Jorvik in York to see how to improve this site.
