Attraction Information

Tiverton Museum is a family friendly museum that offers free entry to accompanied children aged 16 and under, making for an interesting (but inexpensive!) day out with the kids. This vibrant little place is full of fantastic collections of photos, objects, and archives that record the history of the Mid Devon area from the late 19th century onward. In fact it has one of the most extensive social history collections of any museum its size!

There are 15 galleries to explore, covering agriculture, local industries, farm wagons, and the everyday home life of Mid Devon folk. Learn about everything from brewing to bicycles, lace making to laundry, carts, costumes and more family activities are available at all times, and there are Explorer backpacks for the little ones to help them get the most out of their visit.

Highlights include the ‘Tivvy Bumper' GWR steam engine (you can climb inside the cab), a horse drawn Silverton Fire Engine dating from 1837, and a small archaeological display, which includes 400,000 year old hand made axes!

The museum also runs a lively programme of exhibitions and events, plus fun holiday activities, so check online before you visit to see what's on.
