Deal Maritime & Local History Museum
The Deal Maritime & Local History Museum is situated in the heart of Deal, just off the High Street, behind Deal Town Hall, which was built in 1803, and opposite St George's Church and the Chapel Field.
The museum is housed on one of the last industrial sites left in Deal, showing the way in which commercial and domestic property developed next to one another from the seventeenth century onwards in what was known as the ‘New’ Town of Lower Deal.
St George’s Road and the workshop complex was built on what was originally market gardens, producing the fresh produce needed to victual the Fleet lying in the Downs off Deal.
The first floor displays showcase the domestic history and local industry of the town.
Numerous nautical artefacts fill The Maritime Gallery on the ground floor. See the Deal galley Saxon King, built 1891.
A new permanent Model Boat Room has been created featuring several large model boats that have been donated to the museum by local people.
