“Very sweet and interesting. It’s not massive but has a very interesting collection of artifacts from pre historic to fairly modern. It’s a place worth visiting to keep it alive as if we don’t use them they go and gone forever. Lovely 2 ladies who were full of knowledge wit and humour. Go see it keep it going.” August 2023

“A must for anyone wanting to explore Herne Bay and it’s history

Very interesting museum about the town and its history and the wider area. Well informed and helpful volunteer staff made this a very enjoyable visit – thank you!”

“Worth a visit
July 2022
So worth a visit. On entry, it’s not obviously a museum, with some gifts and souvenirs, although head further back and the museum begins. For £3 entry it’s worth it. We had a lovely man guide us the beginning and what to expect as we went around. He was so knowledgeable, I could have listened to him all day.”

“Visited their Stone Age exhibit. What an insane collection of flint hand axes from the local area they have. Truly a collection that rivals some of the big museums in London.”

“Well presented, wide coverage of local interest. Highly dedicated volunteers.”

“Some amazing artefacts from different eras too! Amazing little museum and a must visit!Local residents take care about their Museum. It is felt in every piece and any corner. Thank you for great time!”

“Such a delightful and interesting museum to visit. Bill was very kind, helpful, friendly and informative. It was a pleasure to meet him.
The museum covers a great deal of history, with some very interesting information that really surprised me.
A fantastic museum thanks to the work of its brilliant staff. Highly recommended!”

“A brilliant small volunteer run museum. The staff are lovely and there is so much packed into this little place. If we lived close by I’d buy season tickets. There is a small play area for kids with dress up opportunity. It’s fabulous”

“On a freezing January day decided to have a look around the tiny museum. What an interesting experience elephant tusks to bouncing bombs. Pirates to original commuters via the Thames. Learned how the coastline had changed and how previously mentioned pirates had benefitted from the Napoleonic prisoners of war . Artefacts and information , well worth a visit.”
