Museum Opening Times

2022 opening times:
Tuesday – Saturday           10:00am – 4:00pm

NB. Look out for extended opening times in school holidays and keep an eye on our social media for any changes to opening.

The museum is a treasure trove of quirky objects and artefacts telling the story of life in Mid Devon.

The museum is a bit like a tardis and our visitors are often amazed at the size and variety of our collections! We encourage you to allow at least an hour for your visit, with the last recommended entry at 3pm

Book your Tickets

You can book your visit ahead of time, but it’s not essential and we are still welcoming walk in visitors. If you do book ahead you’ll be asked to choose a time slot. This isn’t a strict arrival time, it’s a guide to help us know when to expect you. By arriving around your chosen time slot you’ll help us manage our capacity and keep queues down.

Have a look at our Visitor Safety page for more information about what we’re doing to keep our visitors and volunteers safe and what to expect from your visit to the museum.

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.
