This is a great little museum run entirely by volunteers. It is well worth the £3 entry fee. The archives have just been reopened for anyone interested in local & family history. Well worth a visit.

If you are interested in the history of Deal it is a good place to visit. We particularly enjoyed the exhibits about Dunkirk and seeing one of the boats that went.

Wonderful museum, lots to see, really interesting displays, and a few local knowledge quizes to play. We really enjoyed our visit and will certainly go back again. A very short walk from the High Street, well worth the stroll!

Deal Maritime Museum is tucked away up a street off the main road but it is well worth seeking out. Quite a little gem bursting with items and memorabilia of interest covering a range of subjects over two floors. The layout may not be best...More

As a child, the thought of a visit to a "local history museum" would have bored me silly. Here, however, the rich and vibrant exhibits bring the maritime history of Deal (historically the world's most prolific smuggling port) to exciting life. The staff are friendly...More
