Ventnor Heritage Centre was established 30 years ago to collect and display the history of the area. The museum traces the story of how the town itself grew from a tiny fishing hamlet in 1840 to a fashionable Victorian resort in the 1860s, and how the villages of Bonchurch and St Lawrence became a favourite destination for writers and artists like Dickens and  Macaulay.  We have an extensive collection of photographs and documents in our archive, and publications, prints and postcards are available for sale in our museum shop.  We are open all year – see Visit us for opening times, location and admission charges.
