Welcome to Ashford Museum. Housed in a 17th century Grade II listed building, the museum is located in the Church Yard, at the Heart of Ashford's Town Centre, and features exhibits associated with Ashford's history.

The Museum holds its exhibits on two floors so there is plenty to see and learn about the town's past.

Opening Hours

We are open from 11 am to 2pm, Tuesday to Saturday, April to October.

Conservation Annexe

The Museum's Conservation Annexe is at 57 High Street (on the corner of the High Street and the access to the Church Yard).

When volunteers are in the Annexe, undertaking conservation and administration work, you are welcome to call in to enquire about donating items, volunteering and membership of the Museum Association.

The Annexe is not yet open for regular hours. Please contact us before making a trip specifically to visit us in the Annexe.

About us

The Museum is operated by Ashford Borough Museum Society, an independent charity, run entirely by volunteers.
We rely on donations and Society Membership subscriptions to meet all of the operating costs including heating, lighting, insurance, etc., in addition to the costs associated with conservation and display of our collections.
