  • Nice museum if you're in the area with very enthusiastic volunteers who are you happy to tell you more. Much also in the steam train where you could stand.

  • It is a very friendly museum for all ages run by volunteers the are 15 galleries depicting the history of Tiverton it has a number of awards this is not a hush hush museum the is something for all ages to do. It is wheelchair friendly and the is a lift to the upper floor, part of the building is the old school and the is the engine of the last steam train that got closed down by Dr Beeching in a separate building in the courtyard. The are many things to keep children excited and interested whilst viewing what the museum has to offer
  • Such a varied content in this deceptively large building kept me and the kids occupied for hours, which was an accomplishment for a 6 year old. The museum contains many agricultural, industrial, and post - modern examples of life in the local area. It also provides information on how the Roman empire changed the region with artefacts on display. Being able to enter the engine compartment of a steam engine was great, and other exhibits had items on display that allowed you to "touch" history going back hundreds of years. There's also little lego figurines dotted throughout the exhibits for younger children to spot, as well as a quiz for them to complete as they view each area of the museum. I would recommend visiting this museum to anyone looking to get out and get a feel for the area, as well as those interested in local history.
  • The Museum is always a good visit and I've been there many times with my grandson they have The Tivvy Bumper train there that the children can go into the cab and "drive' the train with all the sounds and whistle working. The visit last week had Lego all round the Museum and the children had a list of what models they had to find. There was also a model of the Tivvy Bumper made by someone from Austria and loaned to the Museum. Someone has had a wonderful time making up all the characters and models for the children to find. A good few hours wandering around was had by us.
  • Diverse, local history plus the 060 side-tank steam train. A "must see" attraction
  • Great museum for families, my children love it here.
