Hastings Museum and Art Gallery (HMAG) has been open to the public for around 120 years. It has a collection of 97,000 objects, and attracts around 45,000 visitors a year. It’s a popular wedding venue, using the Durbah Hall, relocated from the Colonial and Indian Exhibition held in London in 1886. It houses significant collections of ceramics, local history exhibits, exhibitions on prominent Hastings people including John Logie Baird, Robert Tressell and Grey Owl, a substantial art collection and of course, dinosaurs. It’s owned and managed directly by Hastings Council, with the help of an advisory Museum Committee. There’s also a continuing programme of temporary exhibitions.
