Did you know Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life is a charity? If you’re a UK taxpayer and you make a donation that is 10% more than the entry fee the government will give us an extra 25% on top of your donation. It’s called a Gift Aid visit and it makes a massive difference to attractions like Tiverton Museum. Your extra money will go towards the upkeep of the Museum.
