Interesting maritime Museum
Feb 2020
This museum is on one of the many sites of the old Eastbourne Lifeboat, which now operates out of Eastbourne Harbour.
It is free to enter
It is rather small but has many photo's charts and artifacts to keep you interested for a while between those promenade walks.
Has many gifts to sell in order to raise money for RNLI causes.

VERY INTERESTING
Sep 2020 • Solo
Located West end of promenade by the Wish Tower, staffed by volunteers who are knowledgeable about the RNLI. Well stocked shop full of interesting memorabilia and gifts at reasonable prices. Well worth supporting as the RNLI do an amazing job on the high seas.

This is a very small area,but plenty of interesting things to see and buy,to support the wonderful life guard's who risk their lives every day. Everyone should visit this place when they visit Eastbourne.

Keeping our shores safe
Feb 2020
A look in here is a welcome break from your stroll along the promenade. Don't expect too much although the building is an old and well kept lifeboat station. There are a number of items for sale including cards. At the back is a small free exhibition area which explains the context of the local RNLI. The volunteer staff are friendly, helpful and informative and the place is worth visiting just to chat to them.

Small Museum but worth a visit
Nov 2019
This museum on the seafront is well worth a visit, is very interesting and either donate or purchase something that contributes to the Lifeboats. An amazing organisation with very brave volunteers who risk their lives saving others.

Really not a museum but do support it
Sep 2019
My mother was a lifelong supporter of the RNLI and I am all in favour of them, so do go and buy something, but this visit won't take you long as there's not much to see!
