About Us imageAbout Us image
Our Museum tells the fascinating story of this historic town of Queenborough.

From a small Saxon settlement to a wealthy Borough and Royal Castle built by Edward III, Queenborough is full of Victorian industrial heritage still evolving to this day.

Queenborough was home to over a hundred minesweeping vessels during the Second World War.

The Museum houses hundreds of photographs of the Naval vessels as well as historic images of Queenborough in days gone by.

Along with photographs and documents there are many artefacts to look at.
