Sittingbourne Heritage Museum

Split over two levels and several rooms, the museum houses many objects from Sittingbourne and the surrounding villages which have been donated or loaned by local residents and other museums. We are able to have many constantly changing displays as well as our more permanent features such as ‘The Plough‘ finds cabinet of late medieval items rescued from the demolished public house, which once stood opposite the museum. We are always changing our displays and 2015 will see an overhaul of our lower floor displays, so even if you have visited before, there will be a host of new, as yet unseen, items from the museum’s extensive collection.

Make sure you don’t leave without looking through our small gift shop, which not only sells books produced by the museum’s researchers and those by other authors, but also a selection of souvenirs to remember your visit.
