    Ripped off
    Sick to death of exorbitant rip offs. 8 quid entry for what, at best, is info from coffee table books on the walls and some mannequins with red paint on. If I was a five year old, it'd be an amusement. It is only an amusement not any form of medical history museum. Wish I'd asked for my money back but partner did not want me to kick off. Shonky and there was faeces on toilet floor..

    No Common Stance and one distressed child
    Absolutely appalled, visited the previous day to ask if it was okay to bring a dog. They said everything was fine and that they were welcomed. Visited today only to be told when we were in the “attraction” after having paid and again permitted to take the dog in that we weren’t welcome. We were then frog marches to the entrance to receive a refund. Our child was beside himself after staying awake all night excited and terrified about what was to come. He had a right to be terrified and we have been consoling himself since we left. The organisation should be embarrassed in that it has not got a common line to take on entrance requirements.

    Sick to death Chester. We weren’t sure what to expect. But we were thoroughly entertained.
    What an interesting place. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Lots of gruesome and funny exhibits. We spent a good hour looking at all the information and doing a rat hunt. Very imaginative and creative things to look at and interact with. We particularly loved the Plague Doctor who kept visiting us. Or should we say creeping up on us. Great fun. Probably not for squeamish people or very young children. But our 11 year old loved it. Well worth a visit.

    Great way to spend an hour Orr two
    I had wanted to go here for a while so I went to visit in my way home to bath from bpool It was so cool !I is virtually has a paid public car parking 🅿️ across the road and is very central the building is an old church and the perfect setting the staff were dressed up and very informative with local knowledge! It was definitely a must for family’s as there is a lot of interaction things to do and the big kid in me loved it Really well put together and factual Well worth the 6 pound entry fee! With it being an old building I would wear more clothes to go in especially during the October weather I visited

    Weird, quirky but worth every penny. Set in a beautiful old church building and cheaply priced.
    You probably won't see another museum like it, it goes through medical history in its own unique way. Gory but educational. Kids loved it.

    A great little find!
    We happened to stumble across this place on the way to somewhere else and thought we would pop in. So glad we did! The introduction from the team was brilliant and the exhibits themselves were so interesting. A few of the exhibits were broken or had parts missing (batteries in the torches, autopsy room etc) but it didn't change our experience overall. Very informative and definitely worth a visit if you're passing by!

    It's Ok
    It was amusing for a couple aged in their middle 50's. Needs a bit of TLC. A good dust and cobweb removal! Made us laugh, which is the main thing!

    A great detailed and gory museum
    This is a fantastic museum. I was half expecting a cheap touristy exhibition. But I was wrong. It is well put together and detailed. I was in there for over a hour and a half. The props are very life like and a bit scary at times. I was also surprised to find an adult only section. I would recomend the exhibition if you have any interest in the development of medicine.

    Brilliant
    Greeted by Lance and Cameron, both friendly and welcoming. We entered the museum via the little shop, which is located inside an old church. Whoever came up with the idea for this museum deserves a pat on the back. It's brilliant. Shows the gory side to medicine way back then. Plenty of exhibits, but not for those with a delicate stomachs haha. Go with an open mind, have a giggle or cringe. Gift shop, well stocked, but no fridge magnets (I collect them). Got myself a quirky cup instead. Also toilets onsite. Will be recommending you guys for sure 😊

    Thankful for modern medicine
    It reaffirms our gratitude for modern science and medicine. From its origins in ancient Greece and before, the story of trying to cure the sick is told in all its splendid and gruesome detail. Covering ever present plaques and all the other natural afflictions of people, and continuous efforts to address them, it is a fascinating account.

    Stayed there for about 40 minutes. Interesting and creepy at times. It's not a place that I would return to. Good value for money. Very friendly staff

    Well worth a visit
    We went into the Museum expecting it to be a bit ghoulish and to have seen it all and be out within 30 minutes. How wrong we were! There is nothing disturbing Rather the displays are informative and entertaining. A group of GCSE History students were in the Museum at the same time as us. They could not have failed to learn so much. We spent about an hour and a half in the Museum and could have spent longer. The admission charge is low and well worth the money.

    Don't take cash
    No idea if it's any good because I couldn't get in. They wouldn't accept my cash. Turned away because I didn't have a card

A very enjoyable visit to the museum which was fun and interactive for the kids (11 &10 yrs) followed by a Roman Tour Guide led walking tour (pre booked) but started outside Sick to Death. Our tour guide Nathan was very knowledgeable and my son in particular loved the discussion about Gladiators at the Amphitheater. Will definitely recommend both experiences to others visiting Chester.

Super visit, my mum, 8yr old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The staff were all in full character which really added to the experience and they set the scene which helps to space out the groups walking through the museum and means you have more of your own individual experience. It’s gory and stinky and fascinating and gruesome and there are some fascinating exhibits. (Glad we left our sensitive 6 yr old with daddy though as she would not have loved it so much..) Staff always ready to engage with extra amazing facts - We all learned a lot and we couldn’t believe what a bargain it was!

Dropped in here on a recent visit to Chester and it was ok. It’s fairly cheap to get in but in truth is fairly limited. A lot of information boards and a few average displays of dummies depicted with their organs exposed. The entrance is painful as there is obviously a conscious effort to slow down the entrance to the exhibit so that people don’t crowd in and back up but it does mean you are subjected to an excruciating ‘chat’ with the person on the till who makes small talk to delay entrance.
If I am being honest this is ok to do if you don’t yourself in Chester on a rainy day with kids and looking to kill half an hour.
It’s £6 an adult and £3.50 for a child and that’s most probably about right.

We had a fun visit to the museum which has changed its location just recently. The staff were entertaining on arrival and very attentive! We were a group of 3 adults and 2 youngsters (under 5) who enjoyed being able to touch things with the interactive displays.
Certain aspects of the museum might be a little gruesome for some children, but ours enjoyed it..!

Really enjoyable, yet disgusting addition to Chester.
Well thought out, lots to learn and unlike many other museums, it’s very interactive and you can really get stuck in..

We spent a good hour here and enjoyed every single part.

Really reasonably priced tickets and gift shop.

Would definitely recommend to anyone, couples, families, groups or schools.

The website says: “a brand new history of medicine attraction in Chester. A playground of plague with a smatter of splatter, and a chance to poke into our medical past.”

This gruesome yet informative museum is situated in an old church right in the middle of Chester. You can learn about autopsies, amputations, bizarre ‘cures’ and much more. Normally my daughter runs round museums but we had to practically drag her out of this one!

We discovered it by accident and at £6 for adults / £3 for kids, it’s well worth a visit!

It was a bit of fun on a damp day in Chester. The venue is quite small but there's lots of things to read that are informative. For £6.00 it isn't expensive and you can spend a good half hour or so in there. As others have mentioned the staff are very much in character and we left with a smile on our faces.

We stumbled across this place on a day visit to Chester and this attraction became one of the highlights of our day! The staff were fabulous and you get such good value for money. The building is small but jam packed with interactive elements, information and quizzes along the way. Would highly recommend to anybody heading into Chester and would definitely go again with friends.

I went with my 3 girls aged 11, 7 and 4. I was unsure if it would be a bit on the gory side but I will let me children write their own review below!

I really liked Sick to Death. The staff were really funny and the whole building was full of lot of facts. It was bursting with information and each room had a lot to find out and it was very interactive with lots of doors to open, smells to sniff and even make your own pomander! I really enjoyed it and is was a tiny bit gory but it was Halloween decoration gory. Five stars! - aged 11

I really enjoyed it and I thought some facts were really funny. It was really cool you got to make your own pomander. The mini doors you got to open were fun and every one has a fact to learn - 5 stars
Aged 7

I thought potions were good. Aged 4

(The 4 year old wobbled a little in parts but is quite sensitive!)

It didn't suit us, 13 & 8 year old were both bored. However it was well thought out with plenty of info if you wanted to read lots. The dark and grotty was done well.
Could have been more interactive if it's being marketed to youngsters. Lots of people in a small space felt a bit like being rushed though.
To be fair both of my kids did know most of the information but irony aside the gore could have come with a bit more fun.
