  • This museum is in two parts. The first is about the river Medway itself and the second is about Charles Dickens, who spent a large part of his life in the locality. It is better for slightly older chi...  more »
  • Enjoyed a visit to this free local museum about the Medway area, the ornate "ballroom" was amazing, but the highlight for me was the displays about the prison hulks something I knew very little about....  more »
  • It is a free museum but please make a donation as it it well worth it. The museum is about Medway, the history, the people and the river. It is housed in 2 adjacent buildings and has some excellent di...  more »

  • Great museum! To make it better you can visit free as many times as you want!! The only negative thing I can say is there's nowhere safe to leave a buggy. As you cannot take it around the museum and you have to leave it at the bottom of a public staircase where anyone could rummage through your child buggy. But other then that it's a great place to take the kids and adults enjoy it just as much.
  • There are two buildings available to visit with free entry with local history and art exhibits and some Victorian children's toys and embroidery. I found the exhibits interesting and staff very pleasant and helpful.
  • This place is very good for a family 1 hour out as it teaches history in an interactive way, I believe there is wheelchair access aswell.
  • Very well done, with interesting audiovisual displays. Impressive. especially for a free offering. There are a lot of 'hidden gems' and innovative displays, so worth exploring the corners.
  • Very very over rated. Went for the call the midwife tour. On offer loads of ships and some very old buildings. The tour guide was completely over the top and mainly got on peoples nerves .
