Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Once they found out my grandfather was a seafaring man from there, found what ship he often spoke about. A great deal of things of interest on different floors in a lovely old building.

I really loved this place. The history of the area is amazing. The presentation is split up over the different rooms. It's not for everyone but I liked the old fashioned approach. It's all free and run by volunteers. Puts many council funded efforts to shame.

Lovely museum very interesting exhibits and a super friendly cat. Cosy ten pounds for my family to visit. Worth baring in mind they don't have change and would much sooner you pay by card.

Excellent museum, very informative, spent 2 hours in there. Didn't know that appledore and Bideford played such a big part in North American trade and exploration.

What a lovely museum. Lots of information, pictures, models, tools, etc. relating to the significant maritime history of Appledore.From the Vikings to WWII and later.The exhibits are split into rooms, of which there are about 8.It's not a huge museum but, instead, it is small and friendly. And it is independent and self financing which is very laudable.When you are in Appledore, it's definitely worth a visit.
