It's very interesting to anyone who knows or would like to learn something about the sea and the mysteries it has. Very friendly and helpful staff who can tell you a lot. There are a lot of things you can touch and try making things.

Small but Informative displays that highlight what's under the waves. A commendable effort from the volunteers that run it.

If you are fascinated by ship wrecks and history in general, this was a real surprise find, had some really great and rare exhibits decently displayed, it doesn't take long to look around but well worth a visit.

Free entry. Worth popping in to see displays about shipwrecks around Hastings - I learned lots. Includes some activities for children and a small gift shop. There is an audio visual area which was not operating when we visited.
