  • What a great place to visit so much to see. Lovely friendly staff on hand to advise and answer questions. So much to see it’s worth a second visit to take it all in. Filled with not only local history...  more »

  • Quiet, genuinely interesting little museum, which also kept my 5-year-old interested, and it was pretty educational for him, too. It's in a well-cared-for C18 house overlooking the town. The voluntary staff are friendly, informative and try very hard to make sure you have a good time. Ask to see the Victorian schoolroom over the road. £3 to get in, £1 for kids.
  • Friendly and helpful staff. Dogs are welcome. Informative and well kept exhibits
  • Absolutely packed with info and photos. More aimed at adults, but still good.
  • We Went in here for the first time today even though we've been coming here since 1993, it's fabulous and so fascinating, even the old schoolroom opposite is really authentic. £3 well spent and the staff are really friendly as like all Appledorians 😄
  • Lovely museum with helpful staff. Great value for £3.
