Lots of history presented in this museum which is an old church. Climb aboard a fishing boat, see items hauled up from the sea bed including a doodlebug! You get a good insight of Hasting's early days of fishing. Admission was free.

There's a lot packed in here and lots of tributes to fisherman past and present. Lots of information, friendly staff and a well stored store.

However as it is free it is worth a visit and we will be going back. Please do give a donation though as without support I am sure it won't last as a museum!

Excellent exhibits inside that, together with the fishing boats outside, offer a great insight to the local fishing industry.

It was free entry but you can leave a donation. Very informative and lovely museum. We enjoyed looking and learning about the fisherman over the years of Hastings. This was my second visit. Fantastic! All for free! Very happy! Shame the sea life centre could be better value - we didnt bother going in. Very unique and a real credit... More

Next door to the Shipwreck museum this is another unique museum on the seafront. Lots of history and exhibits, good local stories and a traditional fishing boat to climb aboard, plus outdoor exhibits which help explain the history of The Stade. also free to visit!

The museum is free! The museum helps bring to light the history of Hastings and the incredible past that this sleepy Burrough has to share!
