Lovely museum, interesting to look around 😁
A pleasure to visit. The staff were very helpful. Our two grandchildren really liked the experience. The local history of " The silver mines " , photographs about first world War invaluable. "Find the dinosaur " on each level became an achievement. Plus much more….

Shearings coach holidays took us to Combe Martin and suggested we could visit your museum. Excellent museum, well presented, great detail and display. Bargain price to get in. Where else can you go for £1.50 and get a drink & cake free. We have a donation for the refreshments. Well worth a visit. 🙂
