The Hastings Museum and Art Gallery has so much to offer it is hard to know where to begin. How about with the fine china and art collections? Or the Durbar Hall, built in the style of an Indian Palace for the Indian and Colonial Exhibition of 1886? In the Dunbar Hall are articles gathered by the Brassey family on their numerous voyages around the world during the 19th century.
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.
