A green of a museum, packed with all sorts of curiosities and wonders - some you might expect a museum in a seaside town and some a little peculiar, such as a historically significant train and a loaf of memorabilia relating to Peter Cushing.

Super small museum. Well laid out. Interesting history of Whitstable. First harbour in the world to be served by a railway. Lovly to see Invicta well preserved and cared for and as main display on entering. Well worth visiting. Enthusiastic volunteers on hand to discuss and answer any questions.
