“In Maidstone ? GO TO THE MUSEUM THEN!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Such a great place to visit and learn about so many different local accomplishments, many are of national importance and have made a significant impact upon the related science, art, or history. The staff are super efficient and really know their subjects well. Even if it's only for a quick half hour - don't miss the opportunity to visit the Maidstone Museum.

“Another attraction in the town centre”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We always came here when the family were much younger. Now visit less but still come with one of my children, now grown up. Lots of local history and natural history collections to be proud of. Not struck on the 'glass box' addition but someone obviously thought it was nice. Always plenty of room to look at the exhibits when we have visited and nice to see young couples with their children enjoying the collections. A good one for maybe a rainy day!

“Maidstone Museum”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is a cute, quiet museum with a very eclectic collection. It's in an Elizabethan manor house that was donated to the city in the 1800s (please correct me if I'm wrong). I had a blast just being in a house that old! It's for people who love history.
