  • A must when visiting Hastings. It is an interesting museum with good displays about shipwreck along the coast. Nice little shop for souvenirs.  more »
  • This free venue is always a must visit when we have little visitors. They love love love the life sized ship iat the heart of the museum. They scramble all over it and so enjoy being imaginary pirates...  more »
  • We went a little late (thinking it would close at 17:00 while in winter it is 16:00) but this is small enough to get a good taste in a short timeframe. It isn't the kind of place you'll go to Hastings...  more »

  • I love this museum. Free to get in and has some really nice exhibits based on shipwrecks locally. Not big but enough within to take make it feel like a tardis. Needs a few bits updating but definitely worth a visit
  • Loved this little gem in Hastings. Very interesting facts and teachings, really up my street, liking boats and ships. Learn how to tie some novice rope knots etc. Think they do live shows or something at the back somewhere as there seemed to be a stage/screen area. Would have loved that but wasn't on at the time we went! Loved the little gift shop too.
  • Nice little museum. Focused on the shipwreck discovered near Hastings. Spended ~40min. Entry is free.
  • This museum is full of lots of great stories, and good presentations. Such a lot of detail and fun learning about knot tying with a very helpful curator. It's free to enter and well worth a fiver in the donation box as you leave. The picture here is worth closer inspection.
  • Lovely museum - definetly worth a visit. Loved their little cinema. Whoever thought of the idea - hats off to you. Creates an interesting atmosphere! There are plenty of exhibits including interactive ones. It also has a little souvenir shop with adorable magnets :3
