General info

The Guildhall Museum, founded in 1896, is a lively, informative and colourful treasure trove of Medway's history. It is housed in two historic buildings - Rochester's magnificent 17th century Guildhall and the former Medway Conservancy Board Building. The museum is home to thousands of objects that illustrate the history of Medway - its river, its people and its development through time.
 
Take a tour through a recreated 19th century Medway prison ship in the Hulks exhibition. Find out how the prisoners were treated, see the amazing carvings some of them produced and watch out for the Black Hole.
 
The River Medway Gallery tells the fascinating, inspiring and sometimes tragic stories of the people that lived and worked on the river. Enjoy a realistic trip along the Medway in a tug boat, and see the incredible Seaton Tool Chest  -the most complete set of 18th centaury cabinet maker's tools in the world.
 
The magnificent and ornately decorated Guildhall Chamber is licensed for weddings, baby-naming ceremonies, renewal of vows or civil partnerships.
