Visited here yesterday as part of the wheels of time scheme. Greeted by a lovely lady who really engaged with the children and was very welcoming. Great little museum and felt the children learnt a lot. Worth a visit!

My first visit this year, specifically to see the new permanent display about the Royal Marines in Deal....and I wasn’t disappointed. A first class, informative, well-designed and totally professional display. Congratulations to the team of highly-skilled volunteers who have created this exhibition.
