So much to see here. We were lucky to be shown around by one of the guys who worked there. He had so much knowledge about all the items on show and the local area.

This is a little gem hidden away in Margate Old Town, full of fascinating facts and History of the area, only £1.50 admission and for another £1.00 you can also visit another Historic gem The Tudor House, excellent value for money!
