About Us

Located in England’s most picturesque city, the Grosvenor Museum’s nationally important collections celebrate Chester’s cultural heritage.  The Roman galleries explore life in the Roman fortress of Deva and display the largest group of inscribed and sculpted Roman stones from a single site in Britain.  The paintings and sculpture in the Art Gallery span half a millennium of art in Cheshire, while the Silver Gallery presents the definitive collection of Chester silver.  Nine period rooms illustrate changing fashions in domestic interiors from the 17th century to the 1920s.  Further galleries explore the area’s natural history and display highlights of the costume and coin collections.

There is an active programme of special exhibitions and events. See website for more information.

Wheelchair access to the ground floor, including Exhibition Gallery One, Lecture Theatre and accessible toilet.  No lift to Art Gallery, Costume Gallery or Exhibition Gallery Two on first floor.

Refreshments

There is a small café at the museum offering hot and cold drinks, and small snacks. For something more substantial there are many cafes, restaurants and pubs nearby. You are welcome to eat your packed lunch in the Kings Arms Kitchen, however please note there is no disabled access. The Kings Arms Kitchen is used by schools over lunch periods during term time.
