Exmouth Museum was first opened in 1985, and is housed in a 19th century building which was the Council Stables together with the adjoining foreman's cottage. It is now divided into three galleries, two on the ground floor and one on the first floor.

We show various aspects of Exmouth's past including local businesses, wartime, children's toys, school photos and artefacts, railways, local brickmaking, antique lace and Exmouth commemorative china. The museum reflects Exmouth's rich social history and includes Exmouth memorabilia, local history, the town's connection with the Royal Marines, a Victorian kitchen, a 1950's room and antique bobbin lace.

We have a Great War Exhibition to commemorate the Centenary.

Quiz sheets are available for young visitors along with our ever popular "Find the Cats" trail for the very young.
