Grosvenor Museum covers a diverse selection of topics from habitats to transport, portraits to vicious Vikings. You can explore how these different subjects link with Cheshire and the surrounding area.
There are two Roman galleries, one tells the story of Chester's fortress and legions with displays about the army, building and every day life. Check out the coins, pottery and other everyday objects. The other holds an important collection of impressive Roman tombstones.
There are two Exhibition galleries, which have a changing programme of events and displays, so check online before you visit to see what is on. You can follow a timeline of the history of Chester over the past 2000 years and learn about the history of Chester's geology, local wildlife and the Victorian naturalists who studied it.
Visit the Period House, which has rooms dedicated to different significant periods in history such as an Edwardian bathroom and a Stuart dining room.
