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 Museum Temporary Closure Emergency Appeal

by | 27th March 2020

Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life is temporarily closed to the public in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have cancelled all programmed events until further notice.


We are an independent charity dependent upon the income from admission, events and other activities. This closure is an extremely challenging time for us as we have limited cash reserves to fall back on.


We will be very grateful if you could make any donation to help us survive this closure period. You can donate online by clicking here. 


You can also support us by becoming a museum member. Download the form here. Your membership period will commence from the time that we are able to re-open the museum.


The museum is taking up the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme which means that museum staff will be on furlough leave from 1st April.

In the meantime, we have scheduled posts to share our collections via the museum’s Facebook page; just search for @TivertonMuseum

Thank you to everyone who supports the museum. We hope to re-open and welcome you back to the museum as soon as possible.
