Celebrate the rich history of Chester at the Grosvenor Museum.

Admire the largest public collection of Louise Rayner paintings or the standing exhibit of original Roman tombstones. Don’t miss touring the three-story townhouse decorated in Victorian-style located behind the gift shop. Pack a lunch or plan to eat at one of the pubs in town as the museum has no onsite cafe.
