Bexhill On Sea
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.
