On top of the usual attractions and exhibits on display in the museums and in the grounds (view our gallery here), we have:

– Guided tours of the original restored Battery buildings (tours leave from the front of the museum at 12.00 and 13.30
– Interactive exhibits and displays run by our volunteers
– Military vehicles
– Re-enactors in period uniforms (military and civilian)
– Blank firing weapons display and talk (15.00)
– Gift shop selling memorabilia, militaria and toys

Our museum is run entirely by a team of dedicated and passionate volunteers. We love sharing our knowledge with you and we take great pride in the work we do at the site. We rely solely on donations from members of the public. Whilst we don’t charge entry to the museum, we are always very grateful for any donation you wish to make in order for us to continue our work to preserve and improve the site for future generations. We are very proud to be the custodians of possibly the finest and most complete example of a wartime emergency coastal battery in the UK and, with your donations, we intend to continue our work to ensure the site is available for future generations to learn from and experience.

Please note: Our museum site is wheelchair accessible and dog friendly
