The Museum is home to thousands of objects that illustrate the history of Medway – its river, its people, and its development through time.
The Rochester Guildhall was built in 1687 and incorporated a courtroom and council chamber, which later featured in Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations.
The museum was founded in 1897, in honour of Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee. It was first set up in Eastgate House further along the High Street and was moved into the Guildhall in 1979.
