Welcome to your Museum

Bexhill Museum's collections range from local history and archaeology to fashion and the town's motoring heritage.

Bexhill Museum is open

Bexhill Museum's unique collections are housed in a distinctive building combining a traditional Edwardian museum with a modern extension. Now we able to reopen, our priority is ensuring that visitors and residents alike can enjoy our fascinating collections safely.

We have removed unnecessary touchpoints, increased the availability of hand sanitiser, introduced one-way walking systems, added protective screens, and increased signage and non-contact communication. In line with official requirements the wearing of masks is compulsory for visiting adults & children over age 11.

We will be opening between 11am and 3pm Tuesday through Sunday for the next few months. Our famous model railways, designed & inspired by our Patron Eddie Izzard, are running throughout the day. There’s more about the Museum’s preparations for reopening here.

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.
