Exhibitions at Maidstone Museum include a host of subjects and works that guarantee the chance to witness something new and exciting. Our temporary exhibition gallery – as well as the westspace – gives local and international artists the opportunity to showcase their works throughout the year. Our programme of eclectic temporary exhibitions incorporates a number of styles and artistic approaches, and is continually updated during the year to ensure that there is always something different to see during your visit. From traditional art exhibitions to photography retrospectives, themed collections to costume displays, you can be assured that the temporary exhibitions cover a broad array of topics. In addition, we always aim to deliver a summer exhibition that helps keep children entertained, with activities to complement the displays.
