“Such an interesting place!”

Minster Abbey Gatehouse Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed August 4, 2017

A great place to visit if you want to find out more about the history of The Isle of Sheppey. Set over several floors and some steep steps that lead up to the roof - well worth the small climb for the view. Run by knowledgeable staff who are happy to answer questions.

Visited on a morning in hot weather beautiful piece of architecture. Whilst it has been a place of worship for 1400 years it has numerous rebuilds.

As part of visiting Sheppey, you need to have visited this museum. You can truly see that the volunteers do all to make it a wonderful visit. I loved the sight when you were on top of the building, we done that 18 years ago with family. We still talk about the amazing views. You do need a fairly good mobility if you want to enjoy all this museum has to offer to the full. The staff lay on extra activities certain times of the year. If you see them advertised, it is worth paying this museum a visit.

When we arrived I told my boys 'we'll on be in here foe about 15 minutes, its tiny'
Wrong!
Three floors of amazing exhibits and staff who really care about the place and their visitors. We were given a tour my an amazing gentleman who knew everything about the Isle of Sheppey - and believe me, theres lots to know.
Thank you to the men who stayed open for us and gave such great insight to the island.
