Family Visitors

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

You’ll find play stations and interactive elements, including the chance to stand on the footplate of the Tivvy Bumper steam engine, around the galleries.

Don’t forget to Dress to Impress with our dressing up stations around the museum; the whole family can take part!

Family Activities Station

When you first arrive at the museum, check out our family area. Here you’ll find lots of things to entertain you during your visit and help you explore our collection in different ways.

We have trails and quizzes available based on our collections to follow round the museum.

Explorer Backpacks (suitable for children of all ages) on a range of themes are available to borrow free of charge from the front desk. The backpacks include trails, toys and books to help our younger visitors explore the museum.
