The Bexhill museum was started in 1914 by a small group of dedicated enthusiasts who specialised in natural history, archaeology and ethnography. It has since developed into a fascinating and comprehensive collection. It gives incredible insight into the history of Bexhill, its famous residents and visitors, and the impotent historic milestones that have made Bexhill internationally famous. The museum is an ideal place for adults and children alike. To discover history and journey through time.
