You get a very warm welcome and there's more than enough to see. I especially liked the mock-up WW1 trench. And the photos of famous folk with Deal associations.

This is a great little museum and well worth a visit. There is so much inside, its far bigger than it looks. There is even a small row boat that actually was at Dunkirk. There is lots of history going right back to the 17/1800s....More

We went on a heritage open day, not expecting very much but what a great little museum housing an eclectic mix of local history. Loved it!

Recommend this place if you are at all interested in anything to do with the sea, also town history. Run by volunteers who are totally involved in the history of Deal. Cost hardly a thing to look around this most interesting place.
