Hastings Museum contains a rich and exotic mixture of fine paintings and china, the cultures of other lands and a contrasting view of local wildlife today and as it would have been 150 million years ago.

There are plenty of features for children, with fossils that transform into dinosaurs, prehistoric crocodiles and fish, a diorama of local animals and birds, Native American Galleries complete with tipi and buffalo, and a display on Hastings born conservationist, Grey Owl.

Durbar Hall now contains displays relating to the Indian subcontinent, and to the life of the Brassey family with artefacts collected on their voyages around the world in the 19th century.


Also the Local Studies Room provides access to the Museum's archive and reserve collections, including the Burton Collection, Borough records and title deeds, as well as large collections of photographs, maps and ephemera.
