It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to close the museum until things improve.

It has been the strangest of times and it is a huge disappointment that in my first year of Chairmanship this is the third time we have had to close.

Thank you for all your support – it is so important to us.

We wish you all health and wellbeing and that 2021 will bring much better news.

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.

Newhaven Fort, Seaford’s Martello Tower and The Redoubt Fortress in Eastbourne have joined forces to create the Sussex Coastal Forts partnership (SCF)

This SCF partnership has introduced a shared ticketing scheme and visitors to any one of the three attractions can take their ‘proof of entry’ from their first visit to either of the other two attractions and gain reduced admission.
