Welcome to Exmouth Museum and Heritage Centre which celebrates the people of the town, some famous and many ordinary but all important. They made bricks and lace, built ships and fished, saved lives and survived disasters. The displays in THE COTTAGE and THE STABLES, and upstairs in THE HAYLOFT, tell the stories in the historic setting of buildings that date from one of the busiest times when Exmouth became an important holiday destination.

VISIT US: It’s a great place to explore, whatever the weather. We are OPEN until 2 November 2024 and our opening days are: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays 10.00 to 16.00
Saturdays 10.00 – 13.00
CLOSED on Fridays and Sundays

Displays in the Museum are changed each season and this year we have a display about the RNLI to celebrate their 200 year anniversary. We also have a costume cabinet showing mourning clothes and opera dress. Below are some images of our changes.

We are CLOSED during the Winter months. However, we are able to host your group or society during this time for a special visit, guided if you wish. To organise and discuss possibilities, please email:
