Great museum to learn about the history of exmouth
Oct 2019 • Solo
The museum, run and curated by volunteers has a broad variety of different exhibits that showcase the local area throughout the ages. Everyone I met there was knowledgable and happy to talk about the museum, the town and seemed genuinely interested in the work they were doing. I'd highly recommend visiting. Its closing at the end of october to allow renovations and changes if exhibits but if you have to chance please visit.

So glad you enjoyed your visit. People should know that we intend some open days in the winter and that any family or group that would like to visit between 31 October and March next year can contact us for a special appointment for a donation..as long as the areas are safe.

Called in while in town. Not expensive and although small lots of local history. Volunteer told us a lot about development of exmouth and flooding etc. Well worth supporting.

Small museum but full of interest.
Jun 2019 • Solo
The enthusiastic volunteers were very helpful on arrival, and I spent nearly an hour wandering around the museum. Among the displays there are interesting displays about the railway and the docks, and the development of tourism in the town which I found interesting. There are also a number of folders with additional information which are available for browsing. There are a few leaflets and booklets for sale.
There are plans to improve the museum and I think it deserves support.

A little jewel
May 2019 • Friends
I've lived here for a long time but have never visited the museum before. I had a friend visiting so we decided to give the museum a go. What a treat. First impressions were not overwhelming but as soon as we started talking to the volunteer guides and wandered further into the building it was a really fascinating experience. It would be a great place for children to visit as well with grandparents and to get a real idea of what life was like 50 to 70 years ago. All the guides were brilliant and so interesting. The museum is currently struggling to raise funds so it can stay open. Everyone should visit - it is a real treat. Amazingly it was only a pound each for over sixties.

Thank you. Yes, it’s a bit like the Tardis, much bigger on the inside!

Chance visit
Oct 2018 • Couples
Went past this place by chance and thought we would pop in to have to look round, the staff were very helpful and gave us a good insight the history of Exmouth, we had a very good look round and found it to be very interesting indeed, funds badly needed for this place to keep it going, it's only £1 for senior citizen if you hold a bus pass or£1:50 it's not much and it's well worth a visit, so much history of Exmouth, both myself and my husband really enjoyed the time there. These places need to be kept going to preserve there history, lovely people looking after it, well worth a visit folks.
