Sittingbourne's Very Own Museum

Sittingbourne has had a museum since 1999 but still there are many people who either don’t know about it or where to find it. Located at 67 East Street, Sittingbourne Heritage Museum is 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 regularly 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.

But there is more to the museum than just displays. Behind the scenes, researchers are peering into the town’s past, and then producing highly respected books on various topics.. These books and many more are available in our small shop which forms an integral part of the museum.

We are still very short of volunteers to act as stewards on Saturdays, and there are other roles too. No previous is experience necessary as training will be given.

Please contact the secretary (see volunteering).
