Well worth spending some time here. Loved all the medals and how they are displayed. Some have the owners details as well.

The work experience offered at The Cheshire Military Museum is an invigorating mix of independence and support. We were able to design and construct our own temporary exhibition, but aid was always available. A lively debate about history or even our current climate is common,...More

Very enjoyable and a manageable size venue. If army stuff is your bag this museum will hit the mark.

Very much a natural choice for anyone interested in military history and an insight into the evolution over 300 years of the local regiment - much travel, many colonial conflicts and the harsh impact of the world wars plus up to date deployments.

My favourite Museum in Chester. I'm a military history geek, and I love it. Albeit small and not to everyone's taste (mostly those who do not like Military History) it's worth a visit. You can definitely learn something.
