What might you want to see? Our amazing Elizabethan kitchen? Our spiral staircase made from a ship's mast? Or is it Totnes' illustrious son, Charles Babbage, who invented the first mechanical
computer? or even our resident ghosts?
Whatever your interest in history, Totnes Museum is a fascinating place to come spend of few hours feeding your curiosity.
Due to current events both Totnes Museum & Totnes Archive will remain closed until further notice.
This is not a decision taken lightly as we are a small organisation. But it is most certainly the right one, made with the interests of our volunteers and the general public at heart.
Although the archive will not be taking visitors it will continue to answer local and family history enquiries in addition to offering family history research for £7.50 an hour. If you have any enquiries for them please contact email@example.com
Please keep an eye on our website and on social media for any further developments.
We look forward to seeing you when we open our doors once more but until then look after yourselves and each other.
Totnes Museum & Archive
Enjoy heritage and history? Want experience in museums? If so, you can help.
Totnes Museum is a charitable trust and it could not operate without the help of our volunteers.
When we re-open we would like to be able to do so to the best of our ability. So we are eagerly looking for new volunteers to help us meet this goal and help develop the museum even further moving forward.
Visiting school groups are welcome at the Totnes Elizabethan House & Museum.
We can provide a volunteer to act as your guide to show the children around our museum.
If you are a teacher and would like to organise a school visit please click the button for more details.
Unfortunately due to covid restrictions this is postponed until further notice...
