Tourist brown signs mark the way to our Museums starting at the Weeley roundabout on the A133 from Colchester. At the Weeley roundabout take the B1033 to Frinton-on-Sea, passing through Thorpe-le-Soken and Kirby Cross. To enter Frinton-on-Sea you will turn right at the railway crossing/roundabout and cross the railway line. We are located immediately on your right. Parking is available in the roads close by.

If you arrive by public transport, bus stops are found just prior to entering the town via the level crossing or if you arrive by train turn left as you exit the station and you will find us 400M on your left.

Our museum is located in old railway buildings which are not fully disable accessible. Our displays are desk height & wall mounted. Our gardens are accessible with paved paths and lawns. There are steps into the museum buildings. If you require assistance our volunteers will do their best to help. Please ask for help, if required.
