This is a fun place to look around even just for 10-15 minutes I would definitely pop in. Living along the road in Brighton means day trips to Hastings.

Fascinating museum of old fishing life in Hastings. Free to enter and full of information of fishing life in the past. Well worth a visit.

There is no entry fee but a little contribution is welcome. Lots of old photographs and information on local fishermen. You can easily while away an hour or more looking at the information.

I took my children 8 & 11 here yesterday and we had a great time. It is small yet packed with fascinating history and information and the kids loved learning about it all. They particularly liked going on the boat and it was all completely free. They had a lovely selection of gifts and memorabilia and the ladies in there were very friendly and helpful and offered us hand sanitiser when we entered and there was plenty more on offer as we walked round. They’ve handled the Covid restrictions beautiful and it was great to discover lots of history about Hastings. Thank you for providing such a wonderful service - and all free of charge.

You think, what could there be in a fishermen's museum, but do go - you'll be fascinated with the history of local fishing, the beach, netshops, pictures of people and places. To top it off, there is an old fishing boat in the museum that you can get up on and look around. How brave they were to go to sea in all weathers in this tiny boat to catch fish! It must be hard enough in larger modern boats with radar, motor winches, etc, but in this small wooden boat powered only by humans and sail, it was heroic. Free to visit too! A must-see.
