Heard about the Maidstone Museum from friends, and figured we'd check it out while in town. It's free, so that often means that there isn't much to see. Couldn't be more wrong in this case - this museum was really cool, with a lot of...More

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.
