Popped in whilst in Chester for somthing to do, very good if you are into your military history. (Note: speak to visitors there they can add more info. I spoke to a war veteran and found out lots more)

“A nice little museum”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

This is a really interesting museum, which is often ignored, it's almost hidden in the castle car park. Well worth a visit

“Excellent”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

This museum is situated in Chester castle and is not subsidised by lottery or council so a modest fee of £3 is charged. As the parents of 2 soldiers from the Cheshire regiment this was a fascinating visit. It is basically a history of the Cheshire regiment and given the time I could have spent hours exploring the various exhibits, including the 2 VC's won by soldiers of the regiment

“Very Interesting”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

This small museum is worth visiting. It tells you the story of the Cheshire Brigade (or something like that) and it's role in events ranging from 1700-ish up to today's time. The exhibits are really cool and from time to time they are interactive displays which most of them were really cool. And if you're a student (or a child or etc....) the fee is just £2 (£3 or £4 if not)
