Free to go in, donations welcome. You can easily spend 30mins to an hour here. Good shop and a video explaining one of the wrecks. Lots of exhibits to see.

There is a lot to see here so if you are interested you can easily spend an hour just wandering around. There are many stories to read about the fishing boats and their crews as well as loads of minature models of boats as well as a full sized fishing boat to climb onto. There are also thousands of artefacts... More

Great little free museum. Centrepiece is an old fishing boat you can climb onto. Plenty of little displays and lots of information. Particularly enjoyed the photos and tales of some of the old characters. Definitely worth a quick visit

An interesting insight into the tough life of fishermen past and present. Could have spent hours here as the museum is so jam-packed with exhibits

Photos of Hastings old town and reading about the characters that once lived in the area was very interesting. Made even better because it's free.

Really good! Very interesting, not huge but worth a visit whilst you're in The Old Town. Some interesting old artefacts outside too like a huge anchor which was brought ashore by local men and a boat that has been turned into a mini house.

When you consider that this a free museum you really appreciate how well put together it is. The information is extremely local and helps you understand the town so much better. There are also great original artefacts to gaze upon. The museum is small and perfectly formed in a beautiful 19th century church. The boat in the museum's centre is... More
