The Museum is housed in the Guildhall, a listed building, and tells the story of Sandwich from medieval times. There are many well-designed illustrative panels relating to the history of the town with artefacts dating back to the early 13th century. Amongst many treasures on display is a Roman bowl, discovered nearby, Roman coins and Sandwich's copies of the 1300 Magna Carta and Charter of the Forest, one of only three locations to hold both charters.
