Self-Led Visits

When embarking on a self-led school visit to Maidstone Museum, remember that you are responsible for your group’s care and discipline throughout the visit. It’s important, therefore, to be considerate of other visitors and other school groups. Older secondary pupils, for example, may be working independently in our museum. We expect them to behave sensibly and remain the teachers’ responsibility.

Younger children must remain with an adult at all times. We welcome groups using workbooks, clipboards, and similar items in the galleries. Groups using art materials are welcome to use pencils and pencil crayons. We ask you not to use felt tip pens, fountain pens, watercolours, oil paints, charcoal sticks, or fixative sprays. We do not supply pens, pencils, or clipboards. If you would like copies of our trails and activity sheets, please request these at time of booking and they will be emailed through to you.

Please take care not to touch objects or display cases with art materials, or lean on the cases when drawing of writing. Please do not leave items unattended, and take care not to block any routes or fire exits.
