  • 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 »

  • Difficult place - dark as the theme would suggest. Video interviews with real killers speaking normally was quite disturbing to watch. Lots of interesting stuff in cabinets to read and look at. Slightly overpriced for the size space though. About £5 would have been good, £6 ok, but £7.50 was pricey. Place does do hot drinks from a manned vending machine though. This is great cos the place is in caves so it's COLD in there, as if the theme and talk of grizzly murders wasn't enough to make you shiver!
  • 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.
  • Colin. Quality museum run by quality people.spent 1.5hours here,couldve spent even longer if had the time.lots to see and read.....you find yourself looking over your shoulder occasionally just in case! Was even told that as a large group of people came in just after we arrived,we could come back anytime in the future free of charge to make up for it...where else would you get that consideration?thanks again.
  • If you are interested in true crime then I strongly recommend you go and see it
  • 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.
