The Maison Dieu is a 13th,15th and 16th century flint and timber frame building on the corner of Water Lane and the A2. It is now a Grade 2* Listed building that was once part of a medieval hospital complex which came under Royal patronage.

The museum focuses on the Maison Dieu foundation itself and its immediate neighbourhood, and on the extensive archaeological finds made during excavations at the main complex and an important Roman cemetery nearby.
