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

Small, compact and full of useful and historical information. They had a very good second hand book shelf for those who enjoy reading!

We had a great look around this lovely museum and learnt lots about Combe Martin. The staff were very jolly. The exhibition on the First World War was brilliant.

Still welcoming and smiley at this venue. They are pleased with their Great War exhibition. One feels the insularity - almost as if one is intruding. The area remembers its fallen during 1914-1918, in various ways. Ilfracombe and this village have offered up one or two events to mark the start of World War 1. Ilfracombe has done it more... More
