  • This museum is a veritable treasure trove of local history. It also houses what is reputed to be the oldest Guy Fawkes in the World! A place not to be missed on a visit to historic Battle.

  • Great museum fantastic value and so interesting staff very knowledgeable highly recommended.
  • Wonderful Museum, very interesting and free (donations if you want to - but you really should give generously, as things like this should be supported by us to keep it available to all) Really interesting stuff to see, not least the Saxon "Battle Axe" dating from the time of the Battle of Hastings - an amazing find and there on display for us all to see close up. Run by volunteers and the ladies were so interested and informative and couldn't have been nicer.
  • Very informative, packed with many more interesting items than it would appear at first, tucked away in the beautiful Almonry gardens, and easy to overlook, unless you know about it! One major aspect is that accompanied children are free and can get "hands on" with helmets, shields and clothing to better understand history. Recommended as value for money (just £2 admission!) with knowledgeable volunteers on hand to explain the many exhibits. Give it a try!
  • Sweet thanks
