STAND UP FOR OUR MUSEUM - As of the close of October 2019 we have secured the future of the building!  We will still need to fundraise - to pay off our loan!

We always need volunteers for stewarding, helping with museum maintenance, admin, campaigns and fundraising.  If you can spare a couple of hours a week it could make all the difference.



Our History

Catch up with the past at the Exmouth Museum. Learn the story of the town and the people who, lived, worked and died there, some famous, some infamous, but all important. They made bricks, built ships and survived disasters. The displays in the cottage and the stable tell it all.

What We Need To Do

The Trustees, Management Committee, Volunteers, Stewards and supporters are campaigning to raise funds to buy the buildings from the owners, South West Water. Then the museum will be here for the future.
