Overview

A fun and interesting local history museum on the main street in Kingsbridge where you can discover the history of Kingsbridge and the South Hams. The museum is based in the old grammar school and you can still see the marks the pupils left. The museum has a large social history collection including our farm gallery, showing the importance of agriculture to the area as well as changing displays and exhibitions focusing on a variety of aspects of local life. The museum also has quizzes, trails and an activity table for children all year round, plus events throughout the year. Check out our Facebook page for more details about events.

An excellent local museum in the old grammar school building, we spent 2 hours here looking at the many exhibits. Very interesting WW1 information & farming machinery. More than worth the £3 it cost to get in.

l am a local resident and think this museum in the old grammar school is a real gem as is it's own history. One day l hope to own a piece of Cookworthy pottery.

This museum had so many things to see and although a low entrance fee if you wanted quizzes for the children you had to pay for them, but worth the time and entertainment for them, in its previous life it had been a school so...More
