About Us

The Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon is free to all and tells the stories of the people and landscapes of North Devon. Our collections include everything from our most ancient rocks to contemporary artworks. We are core funded by North Devon Council. The museum includes twelve permanent galleries and hosts an annual temporary exhibitions and events programme. Through our organisation and resources we provide support for local schools, groups and other museums in North Devon.

Our History

The prominent museum building on the Square was built for William Thorne, in 1872. Thorne was a quarry owner and operator of the horse-drawn railway to Fremington Quay.
