We took friends to find out about our town and we also learnt a lot! Two excellent displays with lots of interesting and detailed information. Teignmouth is a town with a lot of history. Don't miss the chance to visit.

Ideal for young and old, plenty of variety and fascinating objects. Laid out over two floors to give a taste of bygone days and especially life relating to the sea. Keats is covered too. Run with the help of volunteers, they all deserve praise.

This is an excellent small museum with much to entertain little ones as well as having some very interesting artefacts particularly those excavated in a Time Team dig.
