    Lovely, somewhat quirky little museum that has something of interest to most people. Very enthusiastic and friendly volunteers run it and they will be as chatty or not as you wish . Not open every day...  more »

You could spend hours in here or just dip in to get a feel for what Margate's all about, either way a great place to better understand the elements that make up the English seaside town.

  • Quaint little museum with knowledgeable and helpful staff. Check out the C17 cabinet in the upstairs display area, awesome!
  • Its a cheap and cheerful place to take the kids, quite informative.
  • What a treasure Margate Museum is, brimming with fascinating exhibits and we were fortunate enough to have been guided around by the Chairman who was an absolute mine of information and the perfect host. Thank you for a most enjoyable afternoon, we were talking about our visit for days afterwards. David, Claire and Bernard B
