Totnes Elizabethan House & Museum

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.

 

Totnes Archives

Tracing your family tree? Wanting to find out more about an ancient house?

 

The Totnes Archives are a fascinating place to investigate the History of Totnes, come and have a leaf through our great reference libraries and ancient documents.

 

Museum & Archive are Closed

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 totnes.archives@outlook.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.


Best wishes,
Totnes Museum & Archive

Visit our Herb Garden

To the rear of the museum, we grow our own Elizabethan Herbs; parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme amongst others. Why not pick up one of our recipe leaflets with a sprig or two, and try our medieval recipes in your own kitchen!

Volunteering at Totnes Museum

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.
