Sidmouth Museum

Sidmouth Museum offers 'Something for Everyone'. The local history of Sidmouth has been greatly influenced by the wide variety of people, some very famous, who have lived and visited the area.

Our displays aim to engage and inspire the widest possible audience. The museum have an extensive collection of fossils, minerals and rocks, many of which are from the Sidmouth area and the cliffs of the UNESCO Dorset and Devon World Heritage site, the Jurassic Coast.
