Whitstable Museum and Gallery

 

Discover the unique seafaring history of Whitstable, famous for its oysters, diving, and celebrity residents!


The Museum is packed with art, images, film and iconic objects: from a diver's helmet and knife, to the slippers in Cushing Corner, worn by the actor during the filming of Star Wars. The Gallery hosts a changing programme of national touring exhibitions and the cream of local and regional art.


The Museum and Gallery is set in a delightful building dating back to the 1700s, with a lovely courtyard to sit in during the summer. It hosts a regular programme of drop-in ongoing activities for families, as well as a traditional play shop and school desk.
