The Museum is now closed for the season, but this gives our volunteers time to do the thousand and one maintenance tasks needed for our building and the collections as well as preparing for next year's displays. We re-open on Monday March 27th 2017 - look out for news of our exciting new exhibition 'William Cookworthy: Pioneer of Porcelain'.





Come inside the Old Grammar School and discover the story of Kingsbridge and the South Hams.


In our galleries you will find both permanent displays and special exhibitions showing how the people of the area have lived, worked and played over many generations.

A highlight of your visit may be viewing our collection of photographs from the 1870s to the present day or a visit to our Heritage Resource Centre for personal research and access to our archives and local records.

Whatever your interest there's something for all the family in this lively local museum, rain or shine..
