The Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon tells the stories of the people and landscapes of North Devon. Our collections include everything from our most ancient rocks to brand new artworks.
We are open Monday to Saturday all year round, and free to all. North Devon Council provides our core funding so that we can care for our collections and make them accessible.
Our permanent galleries now include North Devon in the 20th century, and our temporary exhibitions change regularly. We can provide resources for local schools, play activities for all the family, and talks for local groups. We often get involved in projects with community groups and support other museums in North Devon.
