Sensory experience in the museum

Did you work in the Kent Coalfield or live within the community?

Do you remember the sights, sounds and smells of life below and above ground?

Do you have a story or memory to share?

We need your help with an exciting project starting in February.

Working with a perfumer, Kent Mining Museum has commissioned five brand-new scents that capture the essence of life within the mining community. The completed scents will feature as part of a sensory experience in the museum.

About Sensory Experience in the Museum

Enjoy a coffee with us and come along to tell us about the scents that spark your memories about living in and around the coalfields. This precious information will go on to inform the scents we’ll utilise for our museum exhibitions that will bring history to life for generations to come.
