We visited this museum in the Tourist Information Office more to fill time than anything - but found it very interesting. If you have time - do pop in - there's lots of local history as well as what's been washed-up on the beach. Bigger than it looks and worth a visit!

Very friendly staff here we enjoyed learning about local history and they were very keen to chat to us about how things used to be. Good second hand book stall outside.

I recently visited Combe Martin and found myself joining in a seashore safari with the museum. We all had a brief in the museum and then headed off to the beach armed with buckets and nets to see what we could find. We wandered around looking in the rock pools and saw a variety of wildlife which the museum staff... More

Good to spend a few minutes in the museum finding out about the local history and how things were in times gone by? Lovely people running it and they are happy to share their knowledge with everyone who shows an interest, go on, pop in and you may well be pleasantly suprised?!

Do you employ disabled people at Combe Martin Museum? Nice Museum, as we 've already said here. Lots of history, and the staff are welcoming. However we saw no diversity among the staff in this homegenous town. The Museum is staffed by local senior citizens, a couple of younsters, and by community prominente. The Museum does not apparently represent society... More

One of the very few places open in the winter: Combe Martin Museum is by far the top attraction in the area, so much so that we think it should be expanded in to a cafeteria just like Barnstaple has. Welcoming volunteer staff curate wonderful exhibits that really do tell Combe Martin's story, and in much detail. There is some... More
