Totnes Museum and Archive Corona Virus Closure

Mar 21, 2020

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 or via the website.

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

Become a Trustee

Totnes Museum's Statement of Purpose

We aim to celebrate the people and town of Totnes – its stories, lives, objects, history and future – and to inspire, understand and learn about our place in the world


We are looking for trustees to join our friendly and dedicated Board, to help oversee the management of Totnes Museum and be involved in shaping the future of the museum, to ensure that we can continue to be a thriving venue for visitors and the local community for the next fifty years and beyond.


We welcome applications from people with a wide range of skills and experience; if you are interested in a trustee role and feel that you have different skills to contribute, please apply.


There is no deadline for applications at present, but please be aware that due to the current circumstances, it may take longer than usual to process applications. We will acknowledge receipt of your application.


For further information or to discuss the roles, please email with your contact details and one of the Museum’s trustees will contact you.


If you do not feel the role of trustee is for you but wish to be involved in Totnes Museum in another capacity, please contact us at the above email address. There are many volunteer roles within the Museum, such as collections volunteer, exhibitions volunteer, researcher and many more.
