SEAFORD MUSEUM UPDATE

Finally we have some news and the government has now announced that museums can re-open from 4th July.

Unfortunately the way the Tower was built means it's difficult to arrange for social distancing, but we are working hard to make it as safe as possible for visitors.

We are not in a position to open on 4th July and the Trustees are currently in discussions regarding a potential re-opening date.

In the meantime work is going on in the background to improve facilities for our visitors and we very much look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible.

Seaford Museum Needs You!

Were you in Seaford on V.E. Day? If you were, we would love you to send us your memories and any photos for us to keep in our archives for researchers in order to expand our knowledge of Seaford in those days.

Please email vememories@seafordmuseum.co.uk
Or send to PO Box 2132, Seaford, BN25 9BH
We look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks!

 

Our 50th Anniversary Year

Seaford Museum and Heritage Society first opened to the public in 1970, moving to the newly restored Martello Tower in April 1979.

Things have not stood still for Seaford Museum. In 2018, with funding from the Keith Baker Memorial Trust and the Heritage Lottery Fund, a new bridge was installed allowing access to the original entrance again. A lift and ramps were also installed to allow step-free access to all levels of the Museum for the less able.

The Museum is in You Tube!
Lawrence Chowen is a third year documnetary film making student from Seaford and he has produced an excellent film about Seaford Museum, the Tower and the people involved.

The Museum is run entirely by volunteers and relies on entry fees and fund raising to pay running costs, the most expensive of which are electricity and insurance.
Any donations are very welcome and we have just installed a facility to pay on line via PayPal. If you would like to donate, you can do so via the link below. We would not be able to acknowledge donations but they would be much appreciated.
