Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Pop in and be amazed at the history on such a small island. From Bronze Age to present times. See how they discovered the Roman’s use of the island. Small but packed full of information and facts.

This gem of a museum has some of the most friendly, informative and interesting staff we have ever met. My husband, 2 boys (9 and 11) had a wonderful hour and a bit exploring all the museum has to offer. Would highly recommend a stop here.

We were not disappointed ! We really enjoyed the museum. We could not believe what amazing history wasther. A real little treasure. From the moment we walked through the gate there were interesting items outside as well. The staff were all so welcoming and full of passion and knowledge. We all (8) enjoyed our time there, and as my grown up children pointed out " what a good £2 each spent. Would highly recommend. One of my favourite parts was the kitchen set up with ma and pa round the fire chatting x melted my heart ❤

Full of interesting and colourful displays covering local history and the heritage of the island. Only open Wednesday to Sunday 2 - 5 pm but we could have spent all day there.

What a little gem!!! Whilst walking around West Mersea we happened to chance on the museum, but it was closed. Fortunately the curator arrived 30 minutes early and asked to give him 5 minutes to open up. Whilst he fetched the keys he recommended going into the church next door and asked our kids to search for the ghost ship in the stained glass window. It was such an experience we refused the under 5 rile and paid for them too!!!!
