The Museum is now closed every Wednesday. Closure on Wednesdays will allow for housekeeping and maintenance of the Museum and the collection, archiving and digitilisation of records and staff training, both permanent and volunteer members.

Please note: To prepare for the new exhibition, From Battlefield to Blighty, Bringing the Casualties Back Home, the War Horse room is closed to visitors until Saturday 26 September 2015, the rest of the Museum is open as usual.

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.

The museum also houses the Archive of the Cheshire Regiment. For all enquiries relating to people who have served with the Cheshire Regiment click here.
