    This is a really interesting museum on the Hastings seafront close to the pier. We had a few hours free on an afternoon and spent a good 90 minutes in here. Lots of articles, photos and interactive ex...  more »

    Went this week when it was raining. It' a bit of fun for 3/4 hour. Small film show, lots of exhibits, lots of newspaper articles, so a fair amount of reading. Better than some exhibitions , so worth a...  more »

    We had high hopes when of to visit this 'museum' but sadly it disappointed. Yes, their were stories around the dark rooms of the most heinous villains throughout history. The exhibits were interesting...  more »

  • Wow what an amazing time we had in the True Crime Museum, Hastings. 2-3 hrs, Great Value for Money, extremely interesting and Informative if you are Interested in True Crime, Mass Murderer's, Child Monster's, Highly recommend a Visit, if you're in Hastings and have a few hours to Kill 🔫 (excuse the Punn). Fantastic Exhibitions all throughout. The ambience that's been created feels Dark and Underground, 5🌟. When we visited at Beginning of April 2017, they were working on new exhibitions. Nice Lil souvenir shop, pleasant and friendly Staff.
  • Great attraction and something different to your conventional museum. We took the chance to have the guided crime tour of Hastings too which was good fun and gave us not just the history of the area but insight into local buildings and tips of what else to so in the town. We were part of a large group celebrating a birthday and they kindly gave the birthday girl a gift.
  • better than I expected - maybe could do with more local or UK based crime stuff, but interesting none-the-less.
  • Amazing, creepy caves with interesting facts about true crime. Well worth a visit, rain or shine.
  • Omg! How cool is this place!? The owner is so knowledge and gives excellent explanations on each item he has in his museum, it can be cold so wear a lightweight fleece or jacket, in the winter it's bitter cold so wrap up warm. This place has many marvellous authentic items of crimes committed in history from armed robberies, dog fighting to murderers, you can see clothing worn, letters and artwork and guns used in many crimes, it keeps you thrilled though out and has you talking for hours! Fantasic place and dog friendly so bring Fido and have yourself a interesting look though the windows of time to who committed what crime and sometimes even why 😉 nonexpensive entry fee and books, pens, badges and other goods to buy.... a must if your in Hastings weather it be a day out or a hoilday. I'd give this place a 10/10.... good luck 😉
