Dive into maritime history and explore the town at Whitstable Museum and Gallery. The fascinating displays gives an idea of why Whitstable is here and how it has changed over the years. Its unique seafaring history is explored, including oyster fishing, diving and shipbuilding.
Discover local stories of seaside, floods, the world's first passenger steam railway, shopping, industries, newspaper cartoon characters Pip, Squeak and Wilfred, and memorabilia of resident Peter Cushing. See the big red fire engine, sit at a Victorian school desk and hunt for fossil sharks teeth!
