Sidmouth Museum

Sidmouth Museum

Sidmouth Museum offers 'Something for Everyone'. The focus is on our local history which has been greatly influenced by the wide variety of people, some very famous, who have lived and stayed in Sidmouth.

Our location on the Jurassic Coast lends itself to our rich collection of fossils, minerals and archaeology.
