Full of historical artifacts and well tended gardens made this a visit well worth the while just a pity its not a lot bigger. The artifacts were well presented with full descriptions or explanations so this a must visit for any historical enthusiast.

Visited with the The Arts Society Tarporley. Lots of interesting pictures accompanied by an excellent guide from the museum. Also a good film of the very beginnings of Chester.
