We pop in here regularly on our trips to Hastings, it gives lots of history of the local fishing fleet and is full of interesting things, if you are if you are in Hastings you should pop in and support this small but lovely museum.

Do donate something to this quirky and very interesting small museum wonderfully put together in a random way that tells the story of sea faring in the area. Most interesting and well worth the time taken in enjoying this

If visiting old town Hastings, especially the Stade, you have to pop in to the Fishermen's Museum. Lots to see, including a whole fishing boat

Fantastic place gives a real feel of the fishermen of the past and present in Hastings. Fantastic to think that these brave people went and still go out to sea in such small vessels everyday. Fantastic stuffed albatross in a glass cabinet with spread wings.
