It may be small but it is packed with fascinating artefacts and information about the fishing industry in Hastings and the people who were a part of it - many of them real characters. The building itself is a small converted chapel that now contains...More

Museum is very small, however rather informative, with plenty of display items, old photos and fishing boat you can climb onto. We were out in about 15 minutes, worth the visit if you are close by. Also you can ride a miniature steam engine train...More
