Everything is nice about Whitstable and the Museum is no exception. Small, but loved and some interesting exhibitions from time to time..

“Funny little place!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Funny, quirky local museum. Peter Cushing information interesting. Worth popping in as always good to support these local collections. Would have preferred to see the garden shed exhibitions as noted by another reviewer as the weird temporary art collection was not very engaging!

“Interesting mix of exhibits”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

A nice museum with a wide range of exhibits to do with Whitstable's heritage, both recent and prehistoric. I actually went to see the Peter Cushing display, and I must say I found this a disappointment. There is a glass case full of his greasepaint and other tools of his trade, as well as some a few drawings, and a model set. In addition there is a wall display with some pictures and information. I expected more from his acting career. Surely he kept some of his film props? Cushing was also well known as a painter and I had expected to see some of these, particuarly those of Whitestable itself, but if the museum owns any they weren't on display. The case where his relics were on display was also inconspicous and I had to ask where it was. More needs to be done I'm afriad.

“Eccentric and eclectic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

There's always something fascinating to see here. The latest was an eccentric exhibition of garden sheds. It has local interest and a wider appeal for visitors to the town as well.

“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.
