After finishing my tour of the Canterbury Cathedral, I did not know what else to see/do in Canterbury before I go back to London. The waitress at the restaurant where I had lunch suggested that I should see the 3-4 museums of Canterbury.
I started with the Canterbury Heritage Museum where the receptionist informed me that for 10 GBP I could visit another of their museum, the Canterbury Roman Museum. Because their museums do not received any funding from the National Trust, they have to charge these fees to continue their operations.
Although the Canterbury Heritage Museum has limited items on display, explanations on the walls are adequate and help visitors understand these items and how Canterbury developed from its rural beginnings. The arrival of the Romans, murder of St. Thomas Becket, rule under the Tudors, destruction of abbys and the present time are adequately displayed and explained
I highly recommend that visitors of Canterbury add this museum in their list to see/visit when they are in Canterbury.
