A wonderful museum with knowledgeable staff, and particularly great for a child's party. My son had his 7th 'science-themed' party a few weeks ago. Reasonably priced, no silly rules about food etc...can bring your own or they can supply at a cost for you. Neil...More
I recently attended an excellent local history lecture on the importance of Maidstone as a centre of paper making in the past, since I live in one of the converted mills. I lok forward to similar events

Fantastic Museum. Very varied exhibits. We particularly liked the colourful cabinets of curiosity.

Hi Carol, there is a lift in the main reception area which leads to our temporary exhibition, Japanese & art galleries. You are able to access the Tudor hall, Regimental Museum, Cafe, Local History & Costume galleries through the front courtyard entrance also. We have fitted a new external glass lift that allows access to our Ancient Lives, Explorers & Archaeology galleries but it is quite small so it will depend on the size & weight of the mobility scooter as to whether these three galleries are accessible on the lift. If you speak to the team when you arrive they will advise and assist where necessary so you can get the most out of your visit.
We hope to see you soon.
