A small museum, but packed with a wealth of local history and a wide range of exhibits covering the history of Exmouth. A detailed and thought provoking exhibit about the Great War and the local people who served in it. The reconstruction of a local cottage to represent a Victorian cottage and one from the early 50's is most interesting.... More

This is a hidden gem because there's so much squeezed into the space. Warm welcome from the volunteers who will take time to answer questions. It costs £1.50 per person full price. Opening times vary on each day so check first. There's lace making, first and second world war memorabilia, old photos, re-creation of room from 1950s, school days, jurassic... More

This is a tardis of a museum, it looks small on the outside but has lots of rooms to explore. It's very relevant to local history and has lots to see on a multitude of different subjects.

This museum is tucked away in a side street but is well worth the effort to go. There is a small admission charge but this is a small price to pay for the excellent display to be found inside. At the moment there is a special display relating to WW1. Overall a good place tovisit when the weather is inclement.

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!
