“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. A new and permanent Royal Marines in Deal Exhibition opened in the stable block in 2018, with a Model Boat Room on the first floor. The Maritime Gallery houses Deal's rich maritime history including the Deal galley the Saxon King, built in 1891. Tender Too, one of the 'little ships' that helped evacuate men from the beaches of Dunkirk in World War Two takes pride of place within a Dunkirk exhibition. More old Deal vessels are in the boatyard along with a World War One trench recreation. In the Upper Gallery the local domestic and industrial history is on show including a Kent Coalfield exhibition and maps of Deal High Street. A tablet computer on the ground floor enables visitors with limited mobility to view these displays and take part in quizzes. Families are welcome and there is a free pirate hat and quiz for youngsters.”
“A popular venue with all ages. Friendly bar staff that make everyone feel welcome. There is a huge selection of spirits and a good selection of draft beers, including craft beers. ”
