“Local history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

There is free entry to this small museum, run by friendly volunteers who serve delicious home-made cake in the cafe! We visited on a rainy bank holiday, but for sunnier days there is an attractive garden to sit in. The museum is situated in a house on the Strand, with two rooms set out to recreate those of Miss Holman, the founder of the museum - the kitchen is a hoot! The Strand is a lovely little road to wander along, with many beautiful Dutch style houses.

“Local history run by volunteers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

A real sense of the local history in this fascinating museum. Well worth an hour or two of your time, and with a pretty courtyard to sit in to enjoy your tea after.

“Small museum with lots of variety”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

The museum is all about Topsham, its history and its link with the river and sea. The museum is in a historic building, so is itself an exhibit. The rooms are well themed, and there is an outdoor section to relax in.
