History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Children are not forgotten at the museum - far from it! There are interactive displays including dinosaurs and fossils, not to mention replica Native American tipis. A special exhibition tells the story of Grey Owl, the noted conservationist, who was born in Hastings.
There is also a large collection of local ephemera, including old photographs, paintings, maps, and objects of everyday life. And don't miss the sizeable collection of architectural drawings, portraits and memorabilia relating to the lives of prominent Georgian and Victorian era architects James and Decimus Burton.
