Heritage Open Days: Climb the Observatory

Special Events

Take in the view across Maidstone from the Museum’s Victorian Observatory tower, normally closed to the public.

Free but admissions are timed (every 20 mins) and must be booked in advance.

Unfortunately the Observatory is not accessible for those with mobility issues.

There are 43 steps to reach the Observatory platform. The steps narrow towards the top and ascending/descending will be in single file.
