A registered charity, the Museum provides a portrait of Sittingbourne and the surrounding area at various times from the recent past to our earliest history. From before Roman times people have inhabited the area. They worked on the land; they were traders on and around Milton Creek; they worked in the town’s many inns catering for travellers on the busy Dover Road; they were employed in the brickfields and in the paper mills. During the two world wars they went off to war or made preparations for the worst.
Now open in a new location in The Forum shopping centre. We share this site with CSI Sittingbourne, a Conservation Science Project.
The Museum's website offers genealogical enquiries, and the Youtube channel has over 30 short videos on aspects of Sittingbourne & Milton's history.
Our research group undertake studies of many aspects of local history, and we have so far published over 20 books, available from our website and from on-line retailers.
