  • Absolutely amazing museum. Everything very professionally exhibited at a beautiful location overlooking the estuary. Delightful small garden outside and opposite. Really well presented with a fascinating history of Topsham. Not just maritime history but also religious & social history with recreated rooms and wonderful stories. Free! Excellent tea room. Friendly, helpful staff.
  • Lovely local museum run by volunteers with some fascinating insights relevant to locals and visitors alike. it is hard to imagine now that Topsham once had a fishing fleet second only to London - but so it was. And the home-made cream teas are highly recommended!
  • Exceptional local museum with knowledgeable local volunteers. Enjoy a cream tea in the courtyard.
  • Fantastic free, rural museum. Much bigger than anticipated and such a vibrant history!
