“Delightful small museum”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Recently rebuild local museum. Facinating exhibits covering the history of this small seaside town/port. Everything very well laid out making an enjoyable and very reasonably priced visit - including some old arcade machines you can play on for free!

“just passing...”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

well, decided to give our local museum a visit when passing. Although a small museum it is packed with local history and information. If you want to know more about Teignmouth and the surrounding area do call in. I was very impressed.

“Delightful!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

What a delightful resort to visit! It has a pedestrianised area with cafes and shops, an outdoor Lido, (rare!) and a lovely sea front. Definitely worth a visit. You could spend two days happily exploring !

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

A lovely, refreshing change to many typical local museums - recently refurbished to a very high standard with interesting objects and interpretation. It is smaller than I expected with only two galleries, but they are so well done that I would go back again.

“Interesting small museum”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

My first visit having passed by a number of times, this place is a bit of a reverse Tardis - smaller on the inside than I had expected. I see it opened in 2011 and consequently is much neater and well presented than most of the small museums I have previously visited. The displays were interesting and informative, particularly regarding shipping and shipbuilding, and the strange voyage of Donald Crowhurst.
I feel a little churlish only giving an average score, possibly I missed a little of the clutter that can accumulate in an older museum, and missed having a chat with the staff.
