  • A really good example of a local museum with a diverse set of exhibits based on a historic collection.  more »
  • Well, after a 4 hour flight (and having my medication confiscated at customs), shuttle bus, train, another train, and a cab to get there, we were understandably ready for some full on museum partying....  more »

  • Since my last visit, the museum has been transformed and is a great place to visit. The Local history is particularly good as is the upstairs installation devoted to the life and times of Grey Owl - a Hastings man who left his home in order to experience life as a native American. He became quite a celebrity and managed to conceal his real identity and origin for many years. Don't miss this excellent museum.
  • Charming and cosy. Much under-used. Free parking. Near park/seafront/town centre. The Friday mornings local lectures are a must!
  • This is a wonderful museum that I had almost completely forgotten about. It has a wide variety of exhibits and the section on Grey Owl is particularly fascinating.
  • NIce but much under utilised local museum. Visited with my daughters- last time I went was when I was at Junior school, however many years ago that was. It has changed for the better and more interesting now- has trails for the kids during the holidays to spark their interest more. Good local history and some lovely art on display.
  • Really nicely maintained museum. Small but really interesting with lots of things for kids too.
