Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a super, if small, attraction, and it's free. We went in after a trip to the pannier market. The museum is well wort a look, beautifully laid out with some descriptions for every exhibit without a tacky giftshop.
The range of exhibits is extensive, geology, woodwork, toys, fire engines to name a few but there is more.
One very minor draw back I found was the floor is a little uneven but that is being picky. Well worth an hour of anyone's time

Visited this little gem of a place with my daughter and 9 year old grandson. Despite its cosy dimensions its full to the brim with all manner of interesting exhibits. Definitely worth a visit.

I think crappy little small town museums like this are great and this one is no exception. With half hour to kill in the pleasant town of South Molton we entered the small museum and there were interesting bits and pieces to look at in all directions, even the children didnt moan as much as we thought they would. This was the first day of our weeks holiday and was a great way to start.

Now, I'm not sure if this was a result of COVID, but the town was dead, shops closed/empty, very different to when I visited last around 4 years ago. However, it did mean we were drawn to this little place. Interesting things on show, but disappointed there was not more of a local connection rather than a load of objects that could be from anywhere in the country.

Also, I felt uncomfortable with the 'volunteers' on my shoulder the whole visit, clearly wanting wanting to talk/impart wisdom, when I just wanted to look at stuff for myself. This meant I didn't stay as long as I might have.

I'd say go visit Great Torringon's newly re-freshed collection. They have a fab little local museum.

Spent an interesting time in this museum on my recent visit to South Molton. OK it might not be the biggest visitor attraction in the area but please go there for a "feel" of the history of South Molton and the surrounding villages and the enthusiastic volunteers who run the place

what a lovely incite to South Moltons past, a free attraction (donation if you wish) with friendly staff to answer any questions. Worth a visit for sure.
