A really good small museum well worth the small entrance fee. The costumes and dresses are fascinating and the cars and train set well worth a visit. Plenty for children to see and do

This museum is full of interesting things. reflecting the history of Bexhill on Sea, with Fashion and Motor Racing and much more. A good place to pop in on a wet windy day with or without the kids.

My three reluctant grandchildren were quickly won over by a diverse and unusual collection. Outstanding value for the modest admission.
