Due to Covid-19 restrictions, venues and exhibitions are closed until further notice. We recommend checking with the venues' own websites for up-to-date information. Central Museum houses the collections of local and natural history and archaeology. Displays reflect the story of Southend’s growth as a major seaside destination and its rich natural history and fishing heritage. It is the headquarters of the Service, where cataloguing, conservation and enquiries are dealt with. Central Museum is also home to Southend Planetarium, where live presentations introduce you to astronomy and take you on a tour of the night sky.
