Canterbury Heritage Museum Review

The medieval Poor Priests' Hospital is the site of this quirky local museum, where exhibits provide an overview of the city's history and architecture from Roman times to World War II. It covers everything and everyone associated with the town, including the Blitz, the mysterious death of the 16th-century writer Christopher Marlowe, and the British children's book and TV characters Rupert the Bear and Bagpuss. Kids get in free with their parents.
