The Guildhall Museum is one of the finest 17th-century civic buildings in Kent, and houses a collection that charts Medway's history.
There are portraits of notable MPs, a wide range of domestic artefacts from Darenth Roman villa and collections of Victoriana in the adjoining Conservancy Wing. Further highlights are Dickens-related objects, paintings by Charles Spencelayh, and a full-size reconstruction of part of a Medway prison hulk.
