There’s nowhere else like Deal. It has been pivotal in many UK events throughout history, and Deal Museum provides opportunities for visitors to explore, enjoy and be inspired by the past in and around Deal, and promotes learning and research at all levels.

For fifty years, the volunteer-run Museum has been collating, curating and protecting the history of this fascinating town and surrounding area. The museum is packed to the rafters with a wealth of fascinating objects and artifacts.


Our ground floor gallery celebrates Deal’s maritime history. Find out about town’s main industry in the 18th century (smuggling), and the treacherous Goodwin Sands. See the many incarnations of the pier and a collection of lifejackets of national importance.

Local History:

The first-floor gallery explores the social, commercial and industrial history of the area. Mining, baking, hospitality, banking and more are covered. There are interactive quizzes, two Hooden Horses and a stuffed rat playing a whistle.

Royal Marines:

The stable building houses our Royal Marines display. The Marines have a deep connection with Deal. Here you can see uniforms, personal mementoes, pantomime programmes and hear recorded reminiscences.
