The Rye Historical Society is a not-for-profit organisation that relies on its membership for both finances and to operate the Museum. We hold monthly meetings throughout the year when we have guest speakers or outings to places of interest.

Members can visit the Museum as many times as they like during the year for free, and are notified of special activities being held, can attend all general meetings and receive quarterly newsletters.
