Thank you so much. It means a lot to us that the Mayor is giving us the thumbs up. The volunteers do work incredibly hard to keep Deal's history alive. I will pass your comments on to the volunteers.

Paid £3 entry. Lovely little museum packed with loads of interesting things to see. Tucked away in a side street. The lady we saw was very knowledgeable and friendly. Enjoyed this place much more than Deal castle and cheaper too.

A brilliant little museum that fully complements the town of Deal. It gives a picture of Deal throughout the ages and is manned solely by volunteers. A must when visiting the town of Deal.
