My boys are currently collecting the wheels of time badges so revisited guildhall. We like the fact that the display upstairs in the first building often changes. There's lots to see across the buildings. Staff and friendly and toilets clean!

We hadn’t planned to visit this museum but when we passed it we noticed it was open and free to enter so decided to step inside, I’m glad we did. There are various exhibits of local artefacts but from a personal point of view I found the Hulk exhibition the most interesting. I didn’t really know what a hulk was before visiting here (and have to say that at first sight it didn’t sound very interesting), however, it was actually the exhibition I found the most fascinating, I particularly found it interesting to see the beautiful boxes and games sets made by French prisoners of war. The main hall of the Guildhall is a beautiful room and worth seeing (apparently one can hire this room for weddings etc.)
The Guildhall is in the High Street so one can easily combine a visit here with a trip to the cathedral, castle or a shopping expedition.

And its free entry - well worth a visit, not just dickens stuff. I spent an hour browsing the exhibits

Visited on a very rainy Good Friday. This is a beautiful building, with wonderful displays showing the evolution of the city. Staff very friendly, and excellent interactive exhibits showing the rich history of the place. Well worth visiting.

We popped into the Guildhall Museum and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. From models of siege engines battering Rochester Castle to what is was like on those floating Hulks as prisoners. You saw chain mail, suits of armour, old coins, a whipping post, truncheons etc. etc. All this free!
