We are delighted to announce that Dawlish Museum will be opening to the public on Wednesday 21 July for the first time since September 2019.Since lockdown  restrictions eased, the volunteers have worked tirelessly to spring clean and complete the displays.

New this year is a full room display “The Story of Dawlish Warren” which looks at the fascinating story of how this tiny hamlet with its tavern in the sand dunes, evolved into the major tourist destination it is today.With 11 rooms over three floors, the Museum houses a vast collection of local pottery and glassware, toys, historical maps and photographs, plus railway memorabilia from Brunel to the present day.  It is the home to the D-Day bagpipes and pays tribute to Piper Bill Millin.Whatever your age and interests there is so much to see.

The Museum will be open Wednesday to Saturday, 11am to 3pm , (last entry 2.15pm ) until September 4th.
