The History Hub

The team at Chester History & Heritage are so excited – we will be reopening on Monday 14th May at 10.30am!

Our new home will be The History Hub @ the Grosvenor Museum and we can’t wait to see you there. Our collections include local history books, maps, access to thousands of historical photographs and of course the popular family history research service provided by our wonderful volunteers who are really looking forward to getting back to work. There will also be a few surprise items on view – supplied by the Museum team – which we know you will enjoy seeing, as well as the rediscovered 19thC fireplace and unique stained glass. More good news – we are extending our opening hours so the service will be available 10.30-5 Monday to Friday and 10.30-5 on the first Saturday of the month. In the coming weeks we will be asking for ideas on how to explore and expand our service further, using the opportunity of our move into the Grosvenor Museum to develop and improve.

So, make a date in your diaries to come and see us in our new home – we are sure you will be impressed!
