Welcome to the Maison Dieu Museum Trust

Believed to be the oldest village museum in Britain, the Maison Dieu was originally a mediaeval hospital, and many of our Kings and Queens stayed here on their visits to Canterbury, Sandwich and Dover. Ospringe is steeped in Roman history and the Maison Dieu houses exquisite Roman and Mediaeval collections discovered locally.
