“Not worth it”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Hate to agree with one of the reviews below, but indeed, this "museum" is not worth it.

Exhibits are old, place is tired-looking, and staff really don't know much at all.

“Nice Stop”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We did not intend to stop at the Museum. We just found it by chance. Our host was so knowledgeable and only $5 for the tour. Very interesting!

“A disappointing rip-off”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

This Museum was a disappointment. The displays were old and tired-looking and when we asked the staff on the desk two questions about the industry they didn’t know the answers to either of them. The entry charge of $5 was a rip-off and the advertised “gift” of an oyster to eat didn’t materialise as the two desk staff said the lady who did this wasn’t in that day!

The only good part of our visit to this Museum was that we passed the Bideford Parsonage Museum on the way and that Museum was excellent!
