We enjoyed our visit to Bexhill Museum - it has a very wide collection of items for such a small museum. I believe that children would love this museum as there are interactive displays and its location is next to a playground.

A delightful collection, surprisingly extensive, and very interesting. We learned a lot about the area and it's history. Do go and see the wonderful surprise at the end! Children of all ages will love it! (and so will many Dads, I am sure)
