Brixham Heritage Museum
We offer a choice of activities which are suitable for a variety of ages, and we hold many ‘special days’ both within and outside of our Museum. There are opportunities to become amateur archaeologists, no matter how young, and many other “hands-on” experiences are found on both floor levels inside the building. For all visitors there are a variety of displays ranging from the prehistoric to the 1950s, with particular emphasis on the maritime industry of the area. We also offer Family History Research for all areas, and hold regular talks and social activities. www.brixhamheritage.org.uk
