Explore 2,000 years of Chester's cultural heritage.

The museum holds the largest and most comprehensive collection of Chester silver, and the internationally important archaeological collection includes a display of Roman tombstones. The historic and contemporary fine art celebrates half a millennium of artistic practice and patronage in the region, while the period room displays chart changing fashions in the domestic interior. Other displays include costume and natural history, and there is a wide-ranging programme of exhibitions and events.

Look out for The Wild Escape at museums and galleries in the next few months. Many have special events, or you can use our audio introduction to help children get involved at any cultural venue.

Visiting with children?

Use our audio introduction to inspire a visit to any museum, gallery or historic house local to you. Then, just send us your child’s animal artwork when it's finished and we'll add it to the epic collective artwork that launches on Earth Day 2023.
