Maidstone Museum was established in 1858 and now houses over 660,000 artefacts and specimens. It is housed in a charming Elizabethan Manor House, in the centre of Maidstone, with a modern extension that opened in 2012.

Each gallery will fascinate and surprise, with a wealth of exhibits and objects to see and enjoy as well as regular storytelling and children's holiday activities. Don’t miss the 2,500 year old Egyptian mummy or Maidstone’s dinosaur! Plus fascinating local history – from toffees to cricket balls!

The museum also houses the splendour of the Queen’s Own Royal West Kent regimental museum. Our Japanese Gallery holds one of the finest collections of Japanese art in the country. It contains over 3,000 artefacts, primarily from two locally connected donations in the early 20th Century.

There is a lively programme of changing exhibitions from photographic displays to special costume exhibitions, as well as craft workshops and lectures.
