For a small town museum they have a lot on show for you to look at from the local area. The people are friendly and very knowledgeable. Well worth a look when next coming up to the area. Small entrance fee

This is a very interesting small local museum, full of exhibits displaying the history of the area. The entrance fee is very reasonable. The staff were very helpful. A visit here can be combined with a visit to the equally interesting Wingham Brush Reserve

I think it would be about a 10 minute walk as the Museum is right in the centre of town.
