This is not only a museum but a living history of Budleigh and surrounding area. I reconized a model that my father made before the war. The staff well informed and interesting. I believe they change the displays frequently so will go again.

Free museum to visit in the beautiful town of Budleigh Salterton, East Devon. Open from Easter 2 - 4.30pm, well worth a visit.
