Ideal for young and old, plenty of variety and fascinating objects. Laid out over two floors to give a taste of bygone days and especially life relating to the sea. Keats is covered too. Run with the help of volunteers, they all deserve praise.

This is a small but very interesting and well presented Museum. I would recommend a visit for adults and children, plenty to keep you interested.

This is an excellent small museum with much to entertain little ones as well as having some very interesting artefacts particularly those excavated in a Time Team dig.

It is full of interesting facts about the local scene through the ages. Value for money and good for an hour if raining.

Traveling alone is my favorite travel type. I was not bored or felt alone in a landscape like Teignmouth, Shaldon, and other surrounding cities. I would highly recommend visiting this city, alone, with friends or family, it's fine for everyone!
