Twice we have visited thinking we might go in but both times the then-current exhibition was not something we wanted to see. There seems to be a permanent collection but we could not find out unless we paid the £8/£9 entrance charge (cheaper for locals, free for children). A pity. It is a highly attractive building in a splendid seafront location, with a small but stylish shop. Maybe next time? We spent the money instead enjoying Hastings' iconic meal of fish & chips.
