  • There is an option to buy a little flash light when you arrive at this place. We didn't but could have come in handy during the beginning. Worth the visit and enjoyed thoroughly. Wouldn't advise disab...  more »

  • Interesting to see the old caves, a few fun moments on the tour especially as it was empty. Could do with an update pretty sure the computer games were at least 15 years old but might be older. Don't touch the ropes or ideally anything, it stinks. There is meant to be a screening but not sure if they still do this as they didn't bother for us. Half the bulbs or projectors in the place have stopped working. You may be better off going elsewhere.
  • Great atmosphere walking through the caves went on a hot day so it was quite cool down there. Lots of interesting facts about the smuggling in the area. Apart from about 5 other people who went through quite quickly it was just me walking through most of it on my own which is quite creepy down there which for me really added something although I could imagine it would scare some of the younger kids. Staff were ok but did not seem over interested and around the film area felt rushed out by the man there although he did come the find me to tell me the film was starting. But overall would recommend going
  • Great experience. The museum is interactive, informative and well-kept. Price is reasonable and the staff friendly. Definitely a must see if you visit Hastings.
  • I love this place! Very interactive, intresting and engaging for all: kids and adults!
  • Great little tour, there is quite a few places of being able to get to it, for those adrenaline junkies can take the hill and stairs to the top!
