Ilfracombe Museum

The award-winning Ilfracombe Museum is free to enter for under 16s and is housed in the former laundry of the iconic Ilfracombe Hotel. Packed with fascinating exhibits, the museum first opened in the early 1930s and has some particularly unusual items on display including pickled bats, a two headed kitten and a shrunken head! The collection originates with the curious curator Mervyn G Palmer who travelled extensively in South America collecting butterflies for the British Museum. Step back in time and explore Ilfracombe's maritime history and view the museum's collection of model ships and steamers. Victorian curiosities and memorabilia, exhibits on wartime Ilfracombe, Lundy Island and childhood memories all feature and great activities for children include brass rubbing and quizzes. Pick up a super selection of gifts and books within the museum.
