Museum of Barnstaple & North Devon

Big M

Barnstaple museum is the perfect way to find out more about North Devon. Our collections and displays cover the natural and human history of this beautiful part of the country.

The Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon is currently closed until summer 2019.

While we build our exciting new extension we are gathering local stories about North Devon for our new social history gallery. Visit us at the Popup Museum on the Strand in Barnstaple (opposite the Watergate) Mon to Sat 10am – 5pm to see our plans or share your story!
