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.

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.

Please adhere to 2m social distancing during your visit and follow the one way system. Please wear a face covering when visiting the museum unless you have an exemption.
