Powell-Cotton Museum

Welcome to one of the UK's most fascinating visitor attractions, the home of the Powell-Cotton family and their extraordinary collection of natural history museum treasures. 

Whether you are looking for a family day out or a quiet stroll in beautiful surroundings, we look forward to welcoming you to Quex Park, Kent's natural history museum, Birchington in South East Kent. 

"An exquisite, high class endeavour, unique in its quality, value and sense of the essentials of the period it covers.  A national - and wider - treasure."

The Powell-Cotton Museum at Quex Park was established in 1896 by Major Percy Horace Gordon Powell-Cotton (1866-1940) to house natural history museum specimens and cultural objects collected on expeditions to Asia and Africa.
