Today, the Merchant's House Museum is the largest and finest surviving example of a late 16th and early 17th century residence in Plymouth. The house is divided into 7 rooms, each one with its own central theme and the displays examine aspects of Plymouth's past history, from transport and trade to the effects of the Second World War.
The social history of a bygone age is revealed with a contrast between the rich and poor, whilst the Victorian school room reflects the growth of mass education in the last century.
