  • Love this place. Last went many years ago and returned today wondering if it would still be as fascinating. The original owner was a hunter who basically became an educator. Wander around and take in artefacts gathered on his travels, unlike anywhere else get your hands on some of the collection.
  • This is a truly wonderful place to visit for both adults and kids. The displays of the animals are very life like in their settings and poses. Much better than at the Natural History museum. I found the staff very friendly and not afraid to start conversations rather than wait to be asked. They had a lot of interesting information to tell us, not just dry facts. There was a quiz for the children to do with the clues in the exhibits too. Lots of interesting history relating to the family, house and exhibits. Really well laid out and so much to take in. This really is a great day out.
  • An absolute must see if you are visiting the Margate / Thanet area. An unbelievably eclectic collection of artifacts and dioramas of stuffed animals from around the world. The collection of vintage and unusual guns is particularly fascinating. Once you have spent half a day in the museum, the beautiful gardens and park (with wildlife) will occupy your afternoon. When they were very small my children found Quex House absolutely magical.
  • A real piece of history in our local area. So much in one place. Play centres, outdoor play areas, maze, falconry, museum, restaurants, farm foods, gardens, wedding venue and so much more. A whole day out for all ages at a very reasonable price. Concerts, fairs and exhibitions held regularly. Everyone loves Quex park...
  • Such a fascinating place. The taxidermy is extraordinary and very surreal. The 'touch museum' is also a great hands on section for everyone especially kids. Highly recommend.
