Situated at the heart of the ancient North Devon market town, Holsworthy Museum tells the story of the town’s long and rich past, as well as rekindling fond memories of yesteryear.
Housed in part of a building that is in itself a museum piece – a small manor house dating from the 17th century, which was used as a parsonage for over 200 years – the rooms are filled with memories of the past.
With hundreds of objects and curios, many unique and unusual, and some you may remember from days gone by, there’s something to interest everyone.
Come and spend an hour wandering through five rooms of nostalgia and local history and uncover some of our hidden treasures.
Open Easter until mid- December
Monday to Friday 11am to 1pm
Closed weekends and Bank Holidays
Other times by appointment
Admission is free but we rely heavily on your donations to keep the museum open
