Find out more about the history of our museum
Maidstone offers more than a solitary museum. Though the majority of our 600,000 artefacts can be found in the former Chillington Manor on St Faith’s Street, we also operate the renowned Tyrwhitt-Drake Museum of Carriages and the Queen’s Own Royal West Kent Museum. Both museums offer equally compelling collections, and represent popular attractions in the borough of Maidstone.
