Who we are

Chester Military Museum offers a fun, hand-on approach to learning with sessions designed to allow pupils to explore local, national and international history in a stimulating environment. Sessions at Chester Military Museum aim to increase knowledge, skills and understanding whilst having fun and to encourage children of all ages to enjoy and visit museums and galleries. The Chester Military Museum depicts the history of the four famous regiments connected to the County of Cheshire from 1685 to the present day. The museum takes visitors on a journey through time with interactive and highly visual exhibits covering the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries as well as World Wars One and Two and contemporary conflicts. The museum has a new gallery showing a video of the story of the horse in war (tying in with the play and film of the story War Horse). Temporary exhibitions are also regularly created to tie in with local and national events such as 2012’s ‘Sport in the Army’ exhibition. Education sessions are available at Chester Military Museum for Children and Young People from Key Stages One to Four. Sessions are available to cover themes such as the Victorians (including a special session on Florence Nightingale for Key Stage One), Life on the Home Front and World Wars One and Two.
