    Great, quirky museum. Free and tiny but shows you a broad section of famous women and men from Newton Abbot. Then the train section is great. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and full of chatter....  more »

  • Lovely gem of museum tucked away behind the council offices. The salvage display was fascinating, the stories of local people who made history amazing, there were activities for children and the volunteers were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. So pleased we found it!
