    Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery shares the special story of the borough of Tunbridge Wells. Set in the countryside of the Weald of Kent, the town of Tunbridge Wells grew from the discovery of the spa waters in 1606. The Georgian 'den of iniquity' became the byword for Victorian respectability. The diverse Tunbridge Wells of today is a fascinating and unusual place to live and visit.

    You can enjoy our outstanding collections of costume, art, dolls and toys. We also have excellent natural and local history, from dinosaur bones to the original 'pantiles'. And you can see the world's largest collection of Tunbridge ware - the intricate wooden souvenirs made for visitors to the Wells.

    Come and share the collections in the Museum, in special exhibitions in the Art Gallery and at other venues. Take part in our exciting free programme of events and hands-on activities, both at the museum and out in the community. Aimed at all ages and interests - from pre-school children to adults - events include talks and tours, holiday art and craft workshops and lots more. Look at collections on our website, or make an appointment for research access at the museum.
