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.

Small museum run by enthusiastic volunteers. Many small exhibits which you do not often. Delighted to see technical drawing instruments of an era when I started work back in the 1970's.

Took the children here to pass a bit of time. Ended up having to pop back to the car to pay for longer parking as they spent so long looking around. I spent £1.50 to go in (the kids were free) so spent more on parking than I did the museum. An absolutely fantastic (and cheap) time out.

Worth the £1.50. Quirky and containing little Exmouth tit bits, like the seafront cafe owner who fought the council to keep her store. The curator was very helpful and pleasant and gave me a good summary of the evolution of the town most notably the impact of the railways. Although, maybe they could do we an exhibit detailing this.

The volunteer staff were friendly and welcoming. It is all done on a small scale. You'll be in and out in an hour. Small entrance fee.
