Maidstone Museum & Bentlif Art Gallery
Maidstone Museum is housed in a charming Elizabethan Manor House, in the centre of Maidstone - Kent's County Town. Each gallery will fascinate and surprise; with a wealth of exhibits and objects to see and enjoy as well as regular storytelling, wiggle & jiggle and children's holiday activities.
If you are unable to visit the museum today, then take a virtual tour of our reception, Glass Room, Library, Japanese Gallery and the Kentish Deli Cafe now.
New! Take the family iPad tour with Spike, our friendly Museum dinosaur! These trails are free and available daily from the front desk, on condition of leaving a valid photo ID as deposit (driving licence, passport, bus pass only). Please note, the trail takes approx. 40 minutes, and therefore the ipads will only be given out until 4.15pm.
