Due to the latest COVID-19 restrictions the museum is closed.
We hope to re-open when the lockdown is lifted on Thursday 3rd December. Follow us on social media or check back for updates.
We’ve launched an emergency appeal as we’re dependent on our admission income and have limited cash reserves. You can donate by clicking here.

Family Visitors

Tiverton Museum is the perfect place to head for a family day out.

We have trails and quizzes available based on our collections to follow round the museum. Pencils will be quarantined for 72 hours and sanitised after use.

Please note – Due to the risk of transmission of COVID-19 Explorer Backpacks are currently unavailable. Explorer backpacks (for visitors aged under 7 and over 7) on a range of themes are available to borrow free of charge from the front desk, along with quizzes and trails.

Check the events page to see upcoming craft activities, handling sessions and special events.

The site is fully accessible and there is a lift to access the first floor.

There is currently no access to the cab of the Tivvy Bumper and we have removed some of the interactive elements from the museum to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19.
