Donate and Volunteer


Kent Mining Museum is run by a charity and all your donations go directly back into the running of the museum and the care of its collections.

Please note that due to ongoing work in our archives we are currently unable to accept object donations. We anticipate opening our archives to donations again later this year.

If you would like to support the Kent Mining Museum you can do so in the museum itself or by emailing us.



Do you have spare time? Would you like to meet new people? Would you like to learn new skills? Then why not join our volunteering team? Our volunteering roles offer various opportunities to work with the collections, share your passion with visitors or assist with learning and family activities.

Ask at the front desk, phone 01304 619227 or email us.

Talks, tours and trips

As well as a learning and engagement programme we also offer experiences for groups and organisations. If you would like a museum tour, a talk or an activity session either on site or at your location please contact us.
