Ottery St Mary Heritage Museum

Ottery St Mary Heritage Museum

Ottery St Mary Heritage Museum opened in August 2018 in the Victorian Old Town Hall and opposite historic St Mary's Church, one the finest churches in Devon. Over 1000 visitors were welcomed before closing in late October.

The Museum celebrates the rich social and cultural history of Ottery St Mary and its surrounding area going back 2000 years. The many themes include local literary connections like Samuel Taylor Coleridge, diplomat Ernest Satow and of course Ottery's famous Tar Barrels tradition. The fascinating story of St Mary's Church through the ages is explained including the College, the subsequent foundation of King's School and the town's role in the English Civil War.
