“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I was worried taking a 9 yr old and12 yr old but overall they enjoyed it, especially the interactive sections and roman stuff as well as Ww2 displays. I really liked the room on various cultures and their dress/ household items. The cafe was good as well. Spent a couple of hours in total. So glad we have this in Exeter.

“Small but Very Good. Free!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Tuck away from the busy high street. Easy to find, just in front of the traffic light to Harlequin. Very good facility for disable n families. Even lockers for u to keep your bag. Clean and modern facilities. Lots of stuff animals on the upper floor. Really amazing and mesmerizing! Close on Monday though. Can easily spend 1-2 hours in there.

“Brilliant- for free”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Great experience and free of charge. Lots of examples of artefacts found in the local area. Lots of different rooms, with pieces from different eras. Also some very good animals, real size, and very entertaining for my five year old. Worth a visit just to see the stuffed animals!

“Variety is the name of RAMM's game!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

As an Exeter local, I have been to the museum a few times since it reopened, and have found something new to enjoy exploring each time.

It does exceptionally well at providing a fascinating history of the city as a great starting point - something that would be interesting for locals and tourists alike.

The times I have been there it has housed fantastic national exhibitions, such as the Wildlife Photography of the Year exhibition. It's very easy to loose yourself for hours in this home of history and culture in Exeter city centre.

My favourite exhibition? The giraffe, the elephant...and the harpsichord, of course!

“World class museum”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

This little jewel is up there with the big boys. Really interesting, and FREE!!! It focuses on a very interesting part of England, and has a very eclectic collection. This one is on par with the Peabody museum in Salem, MA (IMHO, the best small museum in the US).
