Welcome back, on the 4th September 2022, the Kent Museum of Freemasonry will open its doors to some special visitors from across the pond.

The Museum and Library officially reopened on the 4th of August this year although we did open the doors in July for the Canterbury Medieval Pageant and to host a visit by the members of Shorncliffe Lodge.

So, what can the Museum offer the visitor?

A recent find in the museum has had everyone very excited, a very rare Heavy Maul, it has been authenticated by the British Museum, and is believed to be over 3000 years old. (The picture is of a traditional Heavy Maul found in all Masonic lodges).

Other display objects include a Medieval sword, a rare copy of the King James Bible, and not forgetting our incredible library of books on the history of Kent as a county.

Not forgetting an history of Freemasonry, a glassware gallery, ceramics gallery, details of the many side orders in Freemasonry, and not forgetting how to join our wonderful fraternity here in East Kent.
