The True CRIME Museum

About

The True CRIME Museum is a SHOCKING attraction for everyone fascinated by the dark world of crime. Set in 3,000 sq/ft of seafront caves, it is the largest collection of crime memorabilia in the UK and open daily from 10am – 5pm.

Suitable for all ages and with wheelchair access throughout, the museum presents a chilling but fascinating insight into the world of Serial Killers, Forensics, Gangsters, Prisoners, Poisoners and more!

See a GENUINE lethal injection deathbed, the ACTUAL acid containers used by John George Haigh to dissolve his victims. Guess the crimes of the celebrities from their police mug shots, then enter the Cinema Cave where infamous murderers describe their hideous deeds.

    We were staying near Hastings and it was a very rainy miserable day, I'd noticed the True Crime Museum before and being a "murderino" thought I'd give it a go. It was great and a lovely way to spend... Read full review
