If you are interested in the history of ordinary people, this is the place for you. Excellent displays of household artifacts particularly from the last two centuries. Only problem is that it is only open in the summer months.

Why oh why did we find this on the last day! The volunteers were so kind and helpful and I cant believe that so few people visit this gem. Please raise your profile let people know what a wonderful historical treasure trove of a resource you have and get some lottery funding!

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

Its very small and quaint, cost a £1.50 to enter, but was worth a visit. The volunteer staff were very knowledgeable and it was interesting to see the exhibits. Not really suitable for children as...

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!
