Ilfracombe Museum

Ilfracombe museum is situated next to The Landmark Theatre on Ilfracombe's seafront.

The museum was first opened in August 1932 by the original curator, Mervyn G Palmer, following his explorations in South America collecting butterflies for the British Museum.

Ilfracombe museum is a fascinating place to visit whatever the weather with its unique collection of memorabilia. The historic building houses some fascinating finds… from a pickled two headed kitten to a skeleton of a four legged chicken!

Peer into drawers and peek into cupboards; wander through eight different rooms and uncover the museum's hidden treasures.

The Main Gallery has drawers of butterflies, beetles and spiders. There are pipes, 20th century ideal home objects, china, items from India and a medical display to name just a few things on display.

There is also a gift shop with some lovely items to purchase either as a souvenir for yourself or a present to take home for a loved one.
