  • A great place to visit for some interesting facts and exhibits on the local wrecks and history. Great value too! Donation worth every penny.  more »
  • Beautifully arranged and very high quality exhibits, with more depth of detail and genuine historical care than you find in many places. The cannons on show are the genuine articles, not reproductions...  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
