The museum contains a mixture of fine paintings and china, the cultures of other lands, well-known personalities such as John Logie Baird and Robert Tressell, and a contrasting view of local wildlife today and as it would have been 150 million years ago.

There special features for children, with fossils that transform into dinosaurs, prehistoric crocodiles and fish, a diorama of local animals and birds, Native American Galleries complete with tipi and buffalo, and a display on Hastings born conservationist, Grey Owl.

The museums Durbar Hall was constructed for the Indian and Colonial Exhibition of 1886 as part of an Indian Palace.  It now contains displays relating to the Indian subcontinent, and to the life of the Brassey family with artefacts collected on their voyages around the world in the 19th century.
