The Cheshire Military Museum, in Chester, tells the story of the Cheshire Soldiers from the 17th Century right through to the present day.

Follow the exploits of the Regiments of Cheshire and their travels across the world during many great battles. Learn about the wars they fought, experience life in the trenches for a World War One soldier, and immerse yourself in the history of the soldiers.

There will numerous new exhibitions opening this year after an extensive refurbishment. We will be bringing our Museum right up to the present day with a Modern Armed Forces Exhibition featuring the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We are also planning a number of temporary exhibitions to run throughout the year including the Army Surplus Sewing Bee (May – July), Dunkirk (Opening in June), Passchendaele – the Battle of Mud (July – November) and a small display to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the conflict in Bosnia.

Something for everyone and fun for all the family!
