We went to see a photographic exhibition of Polar scenes by Sue Flood which was terrific. The staff were friendly, there was no charge or mention of a donation. The historical info on Chester is interesting and we'll definately return to see the bits we didn't have time to investigate.

Nice little museum, no set entrance fee but they suggest a donation of £3 per person. We spent about an hour there and visited all the rooms. We found the Victorian house to be the most interesting part.

Called in by chance for a break, after walking around the walls, and me and my 8 year old son were very pleasantly surprised. The Roman relics were brilliant and well presented, and the photo exhibition was interesting. Also activities for my son to do.And all for free!(made donation of course)!
