Take a child with you

Although we realised halfway round that this is really best enjoyed by children, it was interesting and informative. Better illumination of the excavations would help.

I went along to this museum with 3 children aged 8, 10 and 14 and one other adult. We bought a Groupon family ticket so saved £4. The lady at the reception area was very welcoming and pointed the way to go towards the boat. This sounded very exciting! We entered through the doorway into the "boat" and found ourselves... More

This was possibly the weakest attempt at being a Roman experience that I have ever had the misfortune of experiencing. It was thoroughly embarrassing to have suggested this "Roman Experience" to my mother, and to think there was a fee. The props are tired, the building is tired, there was only one person at the front door, and nobody at... More

We visited with a 5, 6 and 10 year old - did the public soldier tour then the museum, which took about 45 mins - perfect for young attention spans! The tour was fantastic. Our soldier was amazing and really engaged the kids. The museum was just the right level and there was just enough to see and do. I... More

The Dewa Roman experience was an amazing experience. It is truly an experience rather than your standard museum experience. It is great for children and adults. Various aspects of Roman life are highlighted in with life size figures and realistic displays complete with smells and sights. There is also an opportunity to walk below the museum to see the Roman,... More

We love history and romans etc which this didn't disappoint in fulfilling. we found the celler interesting, but was unhappy that there was rubbish scattered all around. the hands on room was fun and we enjoyed dressing up and going to jail etc. we felt that there could have been more or it could have been longer for the price...

Staff were very helpful advising when the best time to visit was without all the school children. The digs that are been undertaking were most interesting.

Our annual class visit to Dewa was once again a real pleasure. We have been visiting Chester to do the ‘Romans’ for some time and once again found the day to be fantastic. I want to say a huge thanks to our Roman Soldier ‘Walkus’ for an inspirational tour with authentic archaeology and fun facts the children will remember.

Went one day after remembering a fond childhood trip. nothing has been renovated. the owners are running it into the ground. its so run down its not funny and i feel sorry for all who come and see it in its current state. Please don't go unless you want to waste money.
