“Old fashioned museum”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

The displays reminded me of museums of my childhood. They need updating and made more visually stimulating, but I expect they're short of funds like everyone else.

“Always love visiting”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

This small museum is a real gem, the staff (who I think are mostly volunteers) always have fun trails & quizzes to do for the kids. Some interesting displays & lots of taxidermy! There is an interactive motoring gallery downstairs,plus a really good costume gallery. There isn't a cafe, but there is a drinks & food machine with a small seating area. If its raining, its a handy place to take the family

“Local history most interesting to me”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Apart from the usual museum exhibits, this museum has a lot of local information about Bexhill, it's history and local people. It is great to see photos and maps of things I can remember and relate to.

There are costume exhibits and the famous Elva car on show. The volunteers are helpful, and there are a few things to buy in the small shopping area. Coffee was only available from a machine but it was drinkable and there was a table to sit at . The entrance fee is small.

There is so much to take in that several visits may be needed. I believe a yearly membership is available at reasonable cost. Local walks are also run by volunteers, and these are interesting too. It is worthwhile spending a couple of hours here, and supporting this facility.

“Excellent!!”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

So very interesting, can look up much information. We looked up when our bungalow was built, and pictures of the street at that time.
