Kingston Museum and Heritage Service operates on two sites and comprises a Museum, Local History Room and an Archives Service.
Kingston Museum is accredited by the Museums Libraries and Archives Council (MLA). The MLA Accreditation Scheme sets national standards for UK museums.
The Museum was built in 1904. The building and its galleries were restored between 1992 and 1997 and include a Lottery-funded 'Town of Kings' Gallery, telling the story of the Borough from Saxon times.
The Museum has three permanent galleries: Ancient Origins, Town of Kings and Eadweard Muybridge, and there is an Art Gallery for temporary exhibitions. The Museum also has a special 'Community Showcase' that can be hired on a monthly basis by local groups. The Local History Room holds a large and growing collection of local history research material.
