It is managed and run entirely by volunteers with the aim of preserving Deal's local and maritime heritage. We have the following galleries: local history; the Royal Marines in Deal; Maritime Gallery which includes boats, a collection of lifebelts and lifejackets, smuggling and the impact of the Goodwin Sands; a model boat room; a Dunkirk exhibition; a WW1 trench; and a boatyard where large items are kept and visitors can enjoy refreshments.
We hold special exhibitions every year - see website for details
