“Small but friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

Title says it all. Worth a visit for the diving history alone. Onlty 3 stars because it is small but to kill an hour or so you might actually learn something.

“A fabulous local resource”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Our museum is a bit like a tardis. From Oxford Street all you see is a doorway, but once you have crossed the threshold you are in a large, well designed, space. You find yourself on a voyage of discovery that rewards your curiosity. Not only are there plenty of fascinating local stories and artifacts but the gallery has regular shows which are designed to appeal to all. We are lucky to have this facility.

“If it wasn't free I wouldn't have bothered”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012 via mobile

Very very mundane. No real focal points. But gives an insight into the town. Worth a 5 minute walk around.

“Great little museum in Whitstable Kent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

We went in when it was pouring with rain and hit upon an excellent photography exhibition that really should have been in a city gallery. The museum was small but very interesting with a helpful assistant who recommended other interesting places to see in the town. Thoroughly enjoyed learning about Peter Cushing the actor. Well worth the £3 fee to get in. Lots of tourist leaflets available.
