“This place is a waste of money.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

A con. Go to the nearby Grosvenor museum which actually has Roman relics, is free, warm, interesting and accessible.
The visit to the Dewa place was one of the worst tourist experiences I've had. Cold and dirty too.
There is a wee place next to the Grosvenor museum where a tour guide gave an excellent hands on guide to Roman armour and helmets and horns etc. But please don't give the Dewa money - I feel conned.

“Great fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

I think this is an experience specifically for the younger generation or those very enthusiastic about the roman era, I have seen many groups of late teens on school trips from the UK and abroad not looking too impressed with the experience, yet the kids seem to love it.

“Ceaser for an hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

I took my nieces to Chester for the day and was voted in as Ceaser for the gladiator show. Thumbs down for the loser I'm afraid!

“A real treat and a well orchestrated step back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2011

This is not a museum. The history of Chester and the archaeological work here is shown in an interesting and entertaining way. Some of the presentation could be criticised but not by me, I found it fun and quite quaint. The further I went into the Dewar the more I enjoyed it – up close and personal.
