The Seaside Museum | Things to do

The Seaside Museum

The Seaside Museum


From Dambusters to floods, piers to Punch and Judy, the Seaside Museum has plenty of surprises under one roof.

Displays include local paintings, prints and photos, prehistoric elephant tusks and fossils from local beaches, coastal wildlife and a Barnes Wallis Bouncing Bomb prototype from World War Two.

With a rolling programme of exhibitions and events there is always something new to see and do. There is also a gift shop stocking local-history books, work by local makers and a good range of seaside gifts. The Seaside Museum is now managed and run entirely by volunteers.
