Covid-19 update:

Topsham Museum is currently closed, with plans to reopen from 21st June.

In the meantime, pick up a free Topsham Trails leaflet from the leaflet box attached to the Museum’s Riverside Garden gate (also available from local outlets) to discover two walking trails of Topsham, with historical information, picture puzzles for children and an inviting pictorial map by Phil Keen.

About us:

The museum which is fully registered with the Museums and Galleries Commission, features the history of the town and port of Topsham including shipbuilding and ship owning, and the wildlife of the Exe Estuary. It incorporates a late 17thC house furnished in period.
