It is not huge but the building itself is also a treat and although the displays offer a lot fo read, they reward time... More

I've done this and the walking tour,and for me, the walking tour was far superior. There some nice curios in the museum but I can't say I'll be recommending the place.

Winchelsea is an amazing survival, a medieval town that has kept almost all of its original layout and at least two of its gateways! Do the museum first and then wander round the town. Lots of material in the museum for a wide range of interests.

Fabulous building so it is worth spending 5 of the 10 minutes it takes to see the exhibits looking at the beams.

There was evidence of a lot of work and research and the exhibits were varied and interesting. Lots to see for all ages. the building itself is very much a part of the areas history.

This museum has a very short opening time in the year. I do understand that most are run by volunteers but there was a queue on the day in October that we went, all reading that the museum was closed and open again next year A great shame

Small but interesting museum, located in a picturesque village on a hilltop. Worth a look if you re in the area as there are wonderful views, decent pub, and church to see as well.
