“Small museum, but interesting”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is small but so is the entrance Fee. Found the exhibition of the Lynmouth Lifeboat trip & the Lynton Railway interesting as we were due to go on it later that day. Lots of local interest. You need to walk around slowly & absorb the info, otherwise you will be in & out in about 20mins. Exhibition of old metal working tools.

This is an interesting museum only £1 entry fee (50p for children). With a creepy ghost story and lots to see.

Reviewed June 26, 2013

I could have spent hours reading the many letters regarding the flood in 1952, but other than that, noting really grabbed my attention
