Small museum. Mostly old tat and junk, but they do make an effort to tell the history of Combe Martin, there is a play space for children, and it is worth dropping in for 10-15 minutes if you are passing.
Well worth a visit. Visited with my boys, aged 11 & 8. Nice and bright, well layed out with nice displays with plenty of interactive displays.
Welcoming staff, highly recommended.
Lift to support access throughout for all
