My family and I were in Chester on Oct 3rd and visited the Dewa "dewa museum". I placed the "dewa " in quotes because it is questionable as to whether this place actually qualifies as a museum or as a cheap ( and I do mean CHEAP) imitation thereof. I'm afraid I was lured here by their slick web page and wanting to please my son-in-law,s passion for all things Roman. WHAT A GREAT DISSAPPOINTMENT!
This place could have been created in someone's garage given alittle time and some minor knowledge of history and Disneyland. The place seemed to be run by 2 or 3 people who gladly took your mone and ran the sad excuse of a gift shop( selling the ever important plastic "Roman sword" made in China).I don't think they have cleaned or updated one thing here since they opened the doors (whenever that was).
This visit was probably the worst experience we had in our 2 week stay in the UK and if it hadn't been a 3 hour drive specifically to see this place I probably wouldn't be writing this review.
The people of Chester have a beautiful city with wonderful historical sites to visit and I think they should be up in arms over this poor example that is so expertly advertised on the internet.
This quasi museum isn't even worthy of being called an amusement for children even though it appeared at the time of our visit it actually was being used as such and selling these children the incredible"Roman" swords for 2pounds each, how awful.
DON'T GO HERE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE! Stick to the traditional ancient sites and don't be mislead by slick websites.
