The Rochester Guildhall, built in 1687, is one of the finest civic buildings in Kent, and home to the Guildhall Museum. Founded in honour of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, the museum tells the story of Medway through lively, interactive displays of its wide ranging collections. Highlights include magnificent plaster ceilings, our newly restored and re-gilded weathervane in the form of a fully rigged 18th century warship, a full-size reconstruction of part of a Medway prison hulk, the Dickens Discovery Room and the Rochester “Riverside Eye” camera interactive.
Admission to the museum is free as are its high quality on-site taught education sessions. Choose from a set programme, or work with the education team to develop a bespoke experience precisely tailored to your class’s specific learning objectives.
