  • 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 »

  • We stumbled across this little museum. The man that runs it showed as around, he made the experience magical. It was so interesting, so many historic finds in there. My son is 5, he really liked it. He hugged a 4,000 year old tree! I would recommend a visit to this if you’re in Hastings.
  • So much history in here, love this place and love watching the little video as well. My daughter she loves it here we take her down here twice in the summer
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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.
