The Museum is open for the summer season and in keeping with the past, admission remains free. It will be a smaller display for the next two years with only the Market House open to visitors as towards the end of October we expect to commence the exciting refurbishment of 14 South Street. Regrettably, most of our collections will be in secure storage whilst the building is reformed, but do visit our website as building work gets underway for progress reports and pictures. Please note that the Museum entrance has temporally moved to just inside the Pannier Market.

Moving forward

We are now at the tender stage for our refurbishment of 14 South Street and the Market House. This will see an extension of the existing second floor of South Street running parallel and to the rear of the Pannier Market. The ground and first floors of South Street will also be remodelled by removing the internal walls to open up the display areas and make for easier access. To facilitate this work, we are currently well advanced in applying for grant funding which will enable us to move forward with our plans for Great Torrington to have a modern appealing interactive museum for visitors of all ages.

We need your help

Please help us fund the cost of modernising the museum by making a donation, or help while you shop - you help us but with no cost to yourself!

We need your help to replace our old display cases and are making an appeal to everyone to make a donation to help us purchase new display cases. Cases cost from £300 to well over £1,000. As little as £5 and any amount up to £50 will see your name on a small glove on the heritage wall in the Museum. We already have some names on the wall so come and join them. Donate more and have your name on a display case.
