Bude-Stratton Museum was established in 1974 by the Town Council in an old blacksmith's forge once owned by Bude Canal.

By 1994 it had become the first north Cornwall museum to gain MGC Certification status. In 2007 it was renamed ‘heritage centre’ and re-housed in the Council’s newly renovated building, The Castle. Here it continues to collect, conserve and document material relating to the history and heritage of the area.
