We visited shortly before they closed but will have to go back. The museum was well laid out with lots of quirky, interesting exhibits.

Actually visited in June 2000. A treasure trove of curiosities hidden away in Ilfracombe. Worth hunting out on a rainy (or not so rainy!) day.

It's excellent, literally stuffed with all sorts of interesting curios and local history. Very reasonably priced as well.
