Find out about: Lyn and Exmoor Museum
A charming small museum with collections of agricultural and domestic tools from Lynton and Exmoor. Also maritime, railway, and natural history. Unique pictures of the Lynmouth Flood, and a Victorian dolls' house.
Housed in Lynton's oldest surviving domestic dwelling, it even includes its own ghost!
The age and compactness of our building limit the facilities we can offer. But we can assure you of a very warm welcome.

The theme of the museum is the social history of Lynton and the surrounding villages through the ages. The earliest display is of Neolithic and Bronze Age flint artefacts, and there are displays from the last two centuries.
A traditional open fireplace complete with bread- oven and an array of pots, pans and fire-tending tools.
A collection of stuffed birds (including a Golden Eagle found storm-battered on Exmoor in 1920) and small mammals. These are housed in our "ghost" room! Visit us to find out the story behind this!
