South Molton Museum

Admission Free 

The Museum is located on the ground floor of the town’s 18th century Guildhall, which was completed in 1743 and is situated on the town square.  The Museum is managed by the South Molton Town Council and volunteers, and engages with the local community to show the social history of their town and its evolution through the centuries.

Collections reflecting the life and times of this historic market town and the surrounding district include local archaeological finds, agricultural implements, items of domestic interest, textiles, documents, maps, toys, and much else besides. In addition to the permanent exhibits there is an eclectic and changing programme of displays; please check the Exhibitions page for details.
Many people are fascinated by their family history, and there is a service point and someone to help and guide you through the process  by appointment only on Mondays and Tuesdays.
A free informative leaflet is available to download here to help guide visitors through the collections.  Museum staff are always available to help you during your visit and will make every effort to assist anyone with particular access needs.
Please note that children of all ages are welcome, but that animals (with the exception of Guide Dogs) are not permitted inside the Museum.
