Celebrating 60 Years of the Battle Museum of Local History

​Battle Museum of Local History has its roots in the community.  It arose from the 1951 Festival of Britain when the people of the town contributed historic objects for an exhibition which eventually led to creation of the Museum itself.  The Museum has worked in the community ever since. 

The Museum has experts, exhibits and archives which bring out heritage for local organisations.  In recent years the Museum has supported Battle Town Council, the Battle Arts and Music Festival, the Library, St Mary’s Church and other leading organisations with their need for advice about local history and for exhibitions about the history of the town. 

The Museum is currently working on two community projects.  In the Autumn, there will be a Battle Remembered photographic exhibition in the Library to help the elderly retrieve their memories of the town decades ago. At the other end of the age range, the Museum is helping Battle and Langton School with its history programme.

The Museum’s work embraces many sectors of the community and of all ages as illustrated by our photo of the Museum’s 60th Birthday in 2016.
