Brixham Heritage Museum

The staff and volunteers maintain a very good educational facility in the heart of South Devon, and we were very appreciative of all their hard work during our visit. Brixham Heritage Museum has ‘free’ admission and is housed in what was once the local police station. As a consequence, this traditional building does not possess disabled access and consists of two floors linked by a narrow staircase. Although it is conceivable that a person using a wheelchair might be able to traverse the lower floor, there is no lift to defeat the stairs. Bear in-mind that the corridors are narrow and a disability scooter would not be able to enter. It would be a good idea if a scheme could be devised and funded to improve access for all members of the community. There is a toilet on the second floor. Check the website for opening times. There are reasonably good areas on both floors for children to draw, colour, read and discuss. Brixham has a rich and at times surprising history with both floors packed with important local, nation and even international history, and helpful staff on hand to explain the exhibits and add interesting details. We heard about Brixham Heritage Museum when visiting Torquay Museum. For all those who cannot travel to Brixham, or who travel to Brixham to find the museum closed or the stairs too steep, etc, you can come on a photographic journey with us through this blog and gain a ‘feel’ of this interesting and charming place.
