Powell Cotton Museum

UK»England»Kent»Powell Cotton Museum

Powell Cotton Museum: Major Powell-Cotton created a unique Museum to reflect the experiences of his travels and show the world to people at home in England.

Following the death of Major Powell-Cotton in 1940, his son Christopher constructed additional galleries to display the family collections of archaeology, ceramics and weaponry. These galleries link physically with the ground floor suite of rooms in Quex House. The Museum now comprises eight galleries displaying many significant and world-class objects, many equal in importance to those held in national collections.
