The museum is open!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were closed for 5 months. 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.
We recommend pre-booking. Please see our Visitor Information page for our new opening times and booking information.

Tiverton’s Tourist Information Service offers a wide range of facilities, including:

  • Information on where to go and what to do in Mid Devon – Free maps and leaflets are still available. We do ask that you use the hand sanitiser provided and try to limit unnecessary touching when browsing leaflets and take any leaflets that you do touch away with you. 

  • Information on local accommodation providers.
  • Tickets on sale for National Express, Megabus, Stagecoach and Berry’s Coaches – Booking services are available as normal during opening hours. Please be aware that most coach and bus services are operating reduced timetables. Devon County Council have taken the decision not to print their regional bus timetable booklets and they are only available online this year. You can download full copies here or we have printed copies available for a small donation. Please ask at the front desk. 
  • Tickets for the Tiverton Community Arts Theatre, East Devon Choral Society and the Theatre Royal in Plymouth are available. We sell Theatre Tokens too which make a great gift and tickets to local events.
  • Tickets available for the Eden Project, West Somerset Railway and day trips to Lundy Island.
