a small but very interesting museum. There are "spot the cats" worksheets for the younger visitors and a worksheet for older children. Part of the museum is a small cottage with many household items in place within it. Upstairs is a fascinating display of Honiton Lace, as well as school desks, uniforms and children's toys. It's not very interactive so... More

I've taken quite a few students here over the past few years and they mostly all like it. I think the cottage part really appeals and you can't believe how much enjoyment they get bashing out letters on the old Olivetti typewriter upstairs!

I took my daughter as she had a school project on old Exmouth. The staff were so friendly and helpful, we spent around an hour and half there with my daughter trying on the old gas masks and clothes. They have a little quiz for children where they have to find the hidden cats in the displays. Worth a visit.
