Do not miss!
Lovely, interesting museum.
I learnt SO MUCH about the heroic fishermen, the film of the difficult landing on Hastings beach is thrilling.
Absolutely brilliant museum on an unusual theme.
The whole museum visit was fascinating; we have been here several times. It's free entry and full of information and interesting artifacts and some interactive exhibits as well.
Good fishy trip
A museum with a interesting history and a nice shop in the south east of and nice cafes nearby to enjoy
excellent place fun and entertaining staff
Great for families, it can be a 10 minutes visit or an hour stay all depending from what you like. My kids ( 8 and 1) found it entertaining and fun. Highly recommended. Great location too.
Shipwreck Museum Fisherman's Museum,
Well presented, fascinating items. A good addition to The Aquarium, Fisherman's Museum, Maggie's Fish & Chips plus the cable car. We did the lot. A great day out!
It’s free and worth the effort to visit
Things for adults and kids. I would recommend a visit any time of the year.
Discovered this by parking in a car park at the furthest point.. dogs are allowed and admittance is free but there is a place for you to donate.. some amazing artefacts and printed history so that people of all ages can learn something.. friendly staff, a small shop! What more can you want?!
what a wonderful place
Such a welcoming lady, very informative and dogs welcome, wonderful museum full of information and FREE. What more can I say, fantastic.
Lovely little museum, nice welcome and a lot to see, very informative.
Also just along the road is the fisherman’s museum which is also free
Nice area of town
Live Life To The Full
Very Interesting Free Museum
Called in here after going to the Smugglers Adventure and True Crime Museum, and was glad I did. The museum has many interesting exhibits and is well worth a look. Located in the old town of Hastings, you could also incorporate a visit to the Fisherman's Museum a few doors down, and also free. Don't forget to put a donation to these museums on the way out.
