A very special collection

You can visit us 11.00am through to 4.00pm Tuesdays through Sunday (Closed on Mondays, except on Bank Holiday weekends). Try a quick a 'virtual' tour here or on the Visit Us tab, then come down for the real thing. Summer specials include a eye-opening exhibition about the Augusta Victoria College, Bexhill's pre-war Nazi girls' finishing school, and Common Threads, an exploration of the common styles & techniques that bind national and folk dress design around the world. Don't miss patron Eddie Izzard's amazing model railways too!

Rother District Council

 Bexhill Museum thanks the National Lottery & Arts Council England, East Sussex County Council, Rother District Council and an anonymous donor for their emergency financial support during the current crisis.

 

Additional support for our reopening activities has come from the South East Museum Development Programme and the European Regional Development Fund via the South East Creatives Cultural and Digital Sector Programme.
