Rye Castle Museum

    Packed with history

    There is a lot to explore at the Rye Museum which is split over two sites.  Rye Castle Museum Ypres Tower and East Street Museum , are just a short walk apart in the medieval town of Rye.  Their exhibits tell the stories of the history of Rye, its inhabitants and the surrounding area.

    The Ypres Tower is thought to have been built in the early 14th century as part of the town’s defences and is the second oldest building open to the public in Rye. (The oldest is St Mary’s church.)

    Visiting times will differ as a result of the pandemic so please check the Rye Castle Museum website for details.
