Exhibits of national and international are housed in the museum's galleries, which tells the story of Britain's explosive military history from the 1700s as well as the more local history of the Medway area which Royal Engineers have been involved with since the time of William the Conqueror.

See Wellington's map from Waterloo in our French Wars gallery or experience our interactive WWI trench. We have a collection containing items from may different cultures and societies as well as a range of military vehicles including a harrier jump jet. There is something for everyone at this unique museum.
