The new Folkestone Museum opens at the end of May.

Funding from the National Lottery has helped create a brand new museum in the heart of the town in the Town Hall.

The museum will house artefacts charting the town’s past from fossils through to early settlements in the area and will include finds from archaeological digs which were in danger of being dispersed away from Folkestone.

The opening weekend over 27th and 28th May will include a host of free family friendly activities from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm on each day.

‘Explore the collections with fun interactives, see and hold real creepy crawlies, dig for fossilised remains and meet characters from Folkestone’s past.’
