Tiverton Museum

With one of the largest collections of artefacts in South West England, you'll find this museum filled with objects from toys to trains, laundry to lace-making and costumes to carts.

Located in Beck's Square, which is just off the main shopping street of the town and integrated with the towns tourist information centre, it's not only a good museum to visit but also a good place to find out about all the other attractions in the area.

The museum is set out in themed sections that cover the many different areas of local life and industry throughout the ages with well-labelled exhibitions laid out over two levels with a lift available for those unable to climb the stairs.

It's family friendly with hands-on exhibitions for the kids and different activities for them to do as they go around encouraging them to explore each exhibit and best of all, kids go free with a paying adult.
