Bexhill Museum has something for everyone from local history and archaeology to fashion and Bexhill's motor heritage. There are hands on displays (have a go at installing spark plugs), a costume gallery with collections dating from the 17th century, and The Sargent Gallery which houses a quirky mix of archaeology, dinosaur fossils, minerals, stuffed birds, butterflies and so much more. There is now also a model railway showing the town during World War 2. Use the access centre for research with desks, computers and reference books. And there's a regularly changing temporary exhibition and display programme.
No parking but usually plenty of on-street parking directly outside the building and in nearby surrounding area.
Food & Drink

The WW11 gallery has a model railway showing the town during the war. It has fairly loud sound affects that some unprepared visitors may find surprising such as air raid sirens, bombers flying overhead etc.
Otherwise the museum is generally quiet. There is an audio-visual DVD display in the Costume and Sargeant galleries but the volume is low.
