I brought my eight American undergraduates to this museum last month as part of a month long programme in the North. They liked this museum best of those in Chester. The exhibits are interesting and well presented. Most unusual are two of the five pens used in the signing of the Japanese surrender in August 1945. Personally, I enjoyed the trench and the hands on experience with a Lee Enfield. Our guide was absolutely excellent, very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. Strongly recommended for academic groups.

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)

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

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
