Daughter enjoyed it... Although very steep!!

A very steep walk, at 6 months pregnant and a warm day I did struggle at times. It is a bit old fashioned but the highlight was the sea lion show, very well done.

Great! Kids do not need to put their arms behind their backs, feel free to interact. Great 3D map models. Nice people who were very friendly. The kids learnt a lot. Great to understand the history of this nice village

This museum is rather larger and better than it seems at first sight and well worth the small admission price. Go there.

Another visit to this fine Museum last month, and little seems to have changed. One of very few attractions in Combe Martin: the museum's displays tell about local Combe Martin history, the war, and local industry, all extremely well presented with maps and illustrations. There are a lot of artifacts here too, but old Combe Martin has long gone, knocked... More

The staff were polite and didn't rush us made us feel welcome. My son whose 10 really enjoyed the microscope section.. my daughter whose 3 was... More

Pocket money priced entry fee, well curated, and well set out. Plenty to see. There was a kids quiz trail running too. You paid for a quiz sheet and on completion the kids get to pick a prize. Definitely worth a visit.

lots for the kids to do, my boy loved the microscopes, we visited on a day when they had a coffee morning so it was free, though it's only adults that normally have to pay and it would have been worth it.

Very well set out, interesting clear information and volunteers who talk with enthusiasm about the village and its history. As an ex teacher I can see they have made it a great place for youngsters.

As we entered the museum we were greeted by a member of staff who chatted with us and made us feel very welcome. The museum itself is small but is full of stories about the locals of Combe Martin and the surrounding area. The photographs were fascinating and I appreciated the attempts to include children in an interactive way. I... More
