Well worth a visit. Basically all outdoors so choose a dry day. The audio guide is an essential and very informative. This provides a key part of the history of Canterbury in a quiet relaxed way.

An interesting museum with a small amount of interaction and some basic labels to interest children. The handset gives more information outdoors than the boards, but I didn't feel the need to listen at every point.

Just roins now but something you won’t see too often. An interesting museum first to give you the context then you head outside and walk through the ruins. Easy to locate, inexpensive, and worth a quick look.

Not only the museum is beautifully kept and really interesting, with virtual reality showing how the abbey was in the past, but also the gardens provide a peaceful oasis of green where you can walk your dog and have a great view of the Cathedral.
