Our second visit to this museum, there is a video downstairs for people who cannot climb the wooden staircase and the staff are very friendly. Someone generally walks you round, talking about the history and exibhits, my husband loves it here, I stayed and watched the video first time around and chatted with the locals.

Would recommend anyone to visit this quaint little museum at the Gatehouse on the top of the hill next to Minster Abbey in Minster on the Isle of Sheppey. Lovely setting with the best views on the island. Lots of antiquities to browse, nice staff that all volunteer.

This is positioned next to the Abbey and contains a variety of historical pieces about the history of Sheppey. It is a little overcrowded but the volunteers are very helpful and informative. There are great views from the roof top 360 of the island!

Be mindful that this museum is only open at certain times so check before visiting or you may be disappointed!

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.
