The Lyn & Exmoor museum is a small museum of local history in an old house (supposedly complete with a ghost) in Lynton town centre. I dare say it will seem much more interesting to those who live locally but may not be so appealing...More

The museum is quite small and if there are a few people there it might be awkward. Sorry I don't know if dogs were banned
