It’s Folkestone Museum’s First Birthday!

Celebrate with us over the May Bank Holiday Weekend

26th – 28th May, 2018

A year ago Folkestone Museum reopened in the newly restored Town Hall on Guildhall Street in the heart of Folkestone.  Folkestone Town Council was awarded £1.9 million of Heritage Lottery Funding to create a wonderful new permanent home for Folkestone’s fascinating heritage and art collections.  Lots of work is going on behind the scenes to bring you more workshops, events and exhibitions to suit all the family.  To celebrate and to say thank you to all those who have supported us this first exciting year we have organised a series of time-travelling events for all the family over the May Bank Holiday weekend.


Join us for crafting fun with a bugs and butterflies theme, try some tasty dishes from 2,000 years ago in the Roman Kitchen and have go at making them yourself, meet Gunner Sergeant John Cullen – a soldier in the Napoleonic wars – who will show you how to make a musket cartridge and tell you what life was like for a soldier 200 years ago, and more …


All activities are FREE drop-in events for all the family, no booking required.  Donations are gratefully received with a suggested minimum donation of £2 per visit, there are three colourful donation boxes around the Museum for you to use.


We look forward to welcoming you!
