“outstanding hulks exhibition”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This is a free museum with displays about Rochester and the surrounding area and river. The displays are interactive,the staff friendly and if you bring a pre arranged school group the education officer Jeremy will deliver bespoke interacting talks - for example armour where the children can try it on.

“A fantastic community museum”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

I wondered into this free museum quite by accident and wasn't expecting a lot. However, it is a fantastic museum and I imagine a great place to take children-pirates of any age will love the hulks which are brilliantly done out. My favourite room was the main hall which was in Great Expectations and it was easy to imagine Pip being frightened by the dignitaries sat on the top level. There are 2 separate buildings but I just visited the first-I will go back and see the rest soon.

“Lovely visit”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Interesting place, Down in the cellars were a bit creepy but lots of interesting facts and items on the other floors. You can pretend to sail a ship,, Cant believe the admission is free,Would have been willing to pay a small admission fee.

“A super treasure trove!”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Excellent exhibitions, attentive, knowledgeable staff and excellent educational facilities. I've visited many times in my capacity as a primary school teacher and also with my family. I have to say that I learn something new on every visit. It's well worth stopping by if you are in the area. Thank you to the education officer, curators and exhibition designers who bring history to life in an engaging way! To top it all, it's completely free! Medway council don't get too many things right but this museum is a real credit!
