A variation of exhibits, including Roman pottery, coins, fossils, historic tools/implements, an interior of an old pharmacy, old children's toys and much more. Great that it's free to enter although it's well worth making a donation to keep the place alive. Perfect for all ages...More

At a time when we so often read of community museums closing down, Kington Museum is a shining example of all that;s good about these fascinating places. In the centre of what claims to be the smallest market town in England, it has fascinating collections...More

A small but well packed full of interest museum. The Curator (Rob) and his volunteers brought the whole thing alive. Not only just great local history but exhibits through some well known eras. Plus the war years and the 'racial harmony' of our American forces!...More
