If you are interested in the history of Deal it is a good place to visit. We particularly enjoyed the exhibits about Dunkirk and seeing one of the boats that went.

Wonderful museum, lots to see, really interesting displays, and a few local knowledge quizes to play. We really enjoyed our visit and will certainly go back again. A very short walk from the High Street, well worth the stroll!

As a child, the thought of a visit to a "local history museum" would have bored me silly. Here, however, the rich and vibrant exhibits bring the maritime history of Deal (historically the world's most prolific smuggling port) to exciting life. The staff are friendly...More

The sailing exhibits are good - ship models and real examples of lifeboats. Some local history exhibits as well. An interesting place to spend an hour or maybe a couple of hours max.
