A small but great museum. Very friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff/volunteers. At only £2 per adult entry fee this is one museum not to be missed. Although it's small we spent 2 very enjoyable hours there. 👍😊👍

Almost walked past but was intrigued by the voice recording playing in the foyer. We climbed the staircase (uneven but authentic) to be greeted by a lovely chap who took our entrance fee and invited us to search the various rooms (not a big place). He then told us of some of the history of the building, prompted by us,... More

We found this open on a sunday in march so climbed the stairs to visit a small but well organized museum packed with exhibits. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful, there were a lot of intriguing exhibits as well as being able to pull out drawers to see more of the collections cataloguing not just the Royal Naval College.

A small museum, but packed with history. From Kings and Queens of the past to a merchant who lived in the house, the museum gives a glimpse in to our history here in England. Some windy stairs to climb, only a short flight, but accessible for most. The Museum also has a little shop and very helpful volunteer staff.

This little museum offers a wonderful snippet of the history of Dartmouth. Some beautiful model ships and a very interesting war display. Worth a good half-an-hour visit.

Loved this place and had to go back as it takes a while to take in the wealth of detail and see all the exhibits. The staff are very knowledgable and obviously proud of the place. There is something from every era of local history plus videos and sound effects andvall for a veryvmodest entrance fee.

Popped in on a rainy day. Stairs difficult for mobility but if you can manage worth 1/2 hour of your time.
