In all the years we have been to Seaford this was our first visit to the museum and what a surprise it is full of interesting facts and displays and the underground area is quite extensive. You can also climb up to the canon placement with it great view of sea and promenade. We were also told that coming in... More

The location itself is interesting and the amount of stuff will be of interest to a lot of people. However, the displays are crying out to be updated and made to look modern and put in a more logical order.

Thank you for the review. We are in the early stages of a "revamp" starting with a new bridge over the moat and an internal lift all for disabled access. As a result, all exhibit areas are being rearranged. We hope to be finished in spring 2017. More

Very good value as your entry ticket also allows you entry to the museums in Eastbourne and Newhaven. It's even worth becoming a member as you receive a magazine, free entry and invites to local talks. If you live locally you can also research local history, including the history of your house. There are so many exhibits you could spend... More

Interesting to have a walk around, but this time I found a room which had access to all sorts of local history. There were books and binders and digital information. I will be back.

There was so much more in this museum than we expected. It looks very small from outside but we were in there over an hour. There was a trail for children to do. The staff were very friendly and helpful too.

I visited here with my family and we were occupied for hours. Lots of things to see and do and a very nice walk down nostalgia lane. Good for all ages and reasonably priced entrance fee. Will be back soon.

We, at the Museum, are very pleased to see such nice reviews. We are all volunteers and it is good to see that our efforts are appreciated. Sadly, we do not have enough volunteers to open more often or to reply to all reviews but we hope to keep running and improving displays and facilities with the limited financial income... More

Open on sundays and Bank Holidays this museum is far large than it appears. With well thought-out displays detailing the social history of Seaford. For Archaeologists there is the largest collection of early axes in the South. There is lots to see and the newest innovation is the cinematic display. Their Victorian & Wartime kitchens make us appreciate our modern... More
