Whitstable Museum and Gallery

Unique seafaring history explored, including oyster fishing, diving and shipbuilding, alongside local stories of the world's first passenger railway, cartoon characters Pip, Squeak and Wilfred, and resident Peter Cushing. The fascinating collection - with frequent new additions - give townspeople and their visitors an idea of why Whitstable is here, how it grew and how it is changing over the years.

The art gallery is a popular venue for the regularly changing special exhibitions - usually 6 per year. It hosts both national touring exhibitions and those put on by local talents. Public events linked to the exhibitions are arranged regularly, including workshops with practising artists for schools and colleges.
