This museum is part of your community and is dedicated to the ancient and modern history of South Molton and the surrounding district.
Come and see our exhibit of locally collected stone age tools, or listen to Mr. Dart telling you about cider making.
Have you seen our man-trap or our Newsham 1736 Fire Engine?
Maybe the history of local mining interests you and of course there are sheep.
South Molton would not have prospered if it were not for sheep, hence their depiction on the borough’s coat of arms.
While you are browsing the exhibits the children can be doing one of our quizzes.
Admission is FREE but of course we would welcome a donation.
