Opening Times

The Museum is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10am-3.30pm through until the end of October, (last entry 3pm). We are also an information point for tourists and can help with maps, local weather forecasts, accommodation and places of interest to visit. 

New this season – we now sell Salcombe Dairy ice-cream and also have a collection of second hand books for sale as well as an eclectic mix of gifts and souvenirs.

We’d like to thank all who have made donations last year, we are very grateful for all financial help given, which goes towards maintaining this unique attraction. If you would like to support us please let us know if you would like to make a donation, for further details.

We have almost completed the process of renovating our Interface/Archive Room which will make access to our records easier for the public. 

The next project will be updating our Information/Reception area.
