We are a community run museum dedicated to capturing the town’s rich heritage. Our volunteers are on hand to show you the world’s first steam powered locomotive passenger railway built by Robert Stephenson to run from Whitstable harbour to Canterbury. Another world first on show is the helmet which was invented by a Whitstable man who, along with hid brother and local pals, went on to become this Nation’s go to team for underwater salvage and treasure hunting.And of course, because Whitstable is world famous for its oysters,there is plenty to see about the origins of the local industry and associated boat building. For children there are some fun things to do including hunting for shark’s teeth, dressing up in Victorian costume and finding out thet Whitstable was home to Peter Cushing, aka Doctor Who.
There is also a quiet garden courtyard to have a relaxing break with your own picnic should you so wish.: 11:00 - 16:00MonClosedTueClosedWedClosedThuClosedFri11:00 - 16:00Sat11:00 - 16:00SunClosedAccessibility features:
