Hastings Fishermen's Museum, Hastings

4.5
#1 of 47 in Museums in East Sussex
Specialty Museum Museum
Hastings Fishermen's Museum resides in the original “Fisherman’s Church” of Hastings--the town changed it in the 1950s to commemorate the long maritime history of the area. Nestled inside the simple mission church, the museum is filled with photos and artifacts of the sea, including shells, nets, and life-size boat models. Stop and watch the video about the trials and dangers of the fisherman’s life. The small museum is volunteer-run, free, and built entirely on the pride of the town’s seafaring history. Before you head to Westfield, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Westfield vacation route planner, to make sure you see all that Westfield has to offer, including Hastings Fishermen's Museum.

  • Great for something free to do, lots of interesting things to look at and learn. We were on holiday here so that was our reason for visiting. My daughter however was not at all interested.. maybe more for adults than children.
  • Well worth a look around interesting facts interactive pieces too and rather than a charge for entry a donation is quite fitting but don't be tight or we loss out on old heritage 😁
  • Quite interesting little museum - free to enter but has a donations box if you wish to donate.
  • It's not big but it is huge on information about the fishermen of Hastings. There is no entry fee so please leave a donation (with Gift Aid if you can) so this rich source of history can continue to flourish. Well worth a visit especially if it's raining!
  • Nice little display worth popping your head in to look
