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.

We are a dog-friendly museum and we welcome your well-behaved pet and assistance dogs. Dogs must be kept on a short lead.
All we ask is for you to respect other visitors and keep your dog on a short lead and under control at all times. Please bear in mind when visiting with your dogs that we are also family friendly and often welcome families with young children into the museum.
We have a water bowl available in the yard.
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.
We are just a few minutes walk from the main bus station. There is a short stay pay and display car park right outside our door (blue badge holders must pay but are given a one hour extension on the ticket’s expiry time). We are only a few minutes from the long stay multi storey car park.
