A very interesting museum with friendly staff. Child friendly.
Oct 2020
The timeball tower has a fascinating history which is clearly displayed in the museum, as well as other means of communication. there is plenty of stuff for children to use and our grandsons (7 & 5 at the time) were enthralled. Every visitor learns a lot & the souvenier shop is a cut above most too.

Really enjoyed our trip to the Timeball Tower - such a wide range of topics covered, from the tower itself to the mautical history of Deal, and general maritime knowledge. Really great activity, and at £3 you can't miss it!

Well Worth a Visit
Aug 2020
Been going to Deal for 4 years now but usually in late October and the Timeball is closed for the season. This time we managed to get to have a look around and was fascinated with the history of time. The only let down was the Timeball wasn't working due to needing essential maintenance which has been delay because of Covid19. Hope its working next year!!!

Deal Time all Tower

Very comprehensive full of small details of the tower. You can spy through telescopes. You feel as if you're in the last or previous century. Extremely talkative helpful staff.

Nice little place
Oct 2019
Travelled down to Deal with family for a day out, 28/10/19. Weather was not so bad at this point of time. Walked to the beach front and came across this place The Time Ball Museum though shut on the day looked interesting, place has historical local information there is a plaque outside giving info. Just across the road from beach, building looks good. Will go back to see more. Enjoyable day out in Deal.

Brilliant museum packed with information
Sep 2019
meant to go in here lots of times over the years, Glad we did it was fascinating and full of different exhibits. Particularly liked the screen you could view if you were up for going up all the stairs..
The volunteers (very friendly) told os that the presentations are due to be updates this winter which will make it even better.

Quirky
Sep 2019 • Solo
A quirky little museum which is very interesting & is indeed a hidden gem in Deal. The staff are great & very informative nevertheless the information boards are quite dated & ‘wordy’ making it a little hard to concentrate on. The video was fab despite being very dated! Great model ships and fab views from the top of the rooftops of Deal as well as free binocular facilities to view areas of Deal. A good visit which is going to be amazing after its soon investment...

Interesting visit
Sep 2019
We have passed the Timeball Tower many times and at last decided to visit. Very interesting to learn the purpose of the tower signalling the the time to many sailing ships massed of Deal waiting for the right wind direction to speed them on their way. Once they set the time on their onboard chronometer navigation was precise and safe. Their are a lot of information displays ande a rather dated video but it gets the points across! A worthwhile visit with friendly informative staff. A word of warning, it is cash only admission, no card facilities.
