Welcome to an Aladdin’s Cave of treasures drawn from Faversham’s long and colourful past!
From our new Reception space you can follow the town’s history from the earliest archaeological
times, through its medieval and Elizabethan importance as a trading centre, its
subsequent industrial growth, and its more recent change from a bustling hub of Victorian and
20th century work and social life to a high quality heritage tourism destination.
The Museum is located in the Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre at 12-13 Preston Street and is open Monday – Saturday, 10-4; Sunday 10-1. Admission is a very reasonable
£5 for adults, £3.50 for 60+ yrs and £1.50 for children (5-16yrs) and full time students, whilst Society members get in free. Your ticket allows entry to the museum for a whole year from purchase date, and last advised entry is at 3pm (Mon-Sat) and 12pm (Sunday).
Like most other museums, the material on display is only a proportion of the Society’s
holdings. The Museum’s stores hold a wide range of artefacts, documentary and photographic
evidence, as well as a libraries relating to our material and to local history.
Appointments can be made to view material by contacting the Curators’ Office on 01795

The Gallery hosts a changing programme of artistic and historical exhibitions, showcasing
work by local artists and schools as well as highlighting specific aspects of our collections e.g.
costume exhibitions. There is always something interesting to see with new shows every
month – check our News & Events page for details of current and upcoming shows.
