Attraction Information

  • Museums and Art Galleries icon Museums and Art Galleries

Suitable for ages: Babies and Toddlers (0-3), Young Children (4-8) and Older Children (9-12)

Venue type: Indoor

Brixham Heritage Museum offers a fascinating way to discover the complete history of the small fishing town of Brixham, with a number of interesting displays and exhibits. It is family friendly, with themed costumes for all ages, plus quizzes and competitions, activity areas for reading and drawing, and activity bags for younger kids to ensure that everyone makes the most of their visit, whatever their age.

There is plenty to see, from the Bone Caverns detailing Brixham's beginnings, to an original 1902 police cell, a maritime room to a reconstruction of a fisherman's cottage. See a Victorian house and nursery, artefacts from both world wars, plus recent archaeological finds from Berry Head. There is a great toy display that was originally set up for the museum's 50th anniversary, but was kept due to public interest, plus a Lifeboat and Coastguard Station display with models and photographs.

An excellent introduction to the area, with much more on display than you would expect, as it is deceptively small from the outside. The museum was also the winner of the 2013 Telegraph Family Friendly Museum Award.
