Welcome to Exmouth Museum & heritage centre

Exmouth Museum and Heritage Centre 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.

It’s a great place to explore, whatever the weather.
